Just for your information :
Regarding the "Rules of the road" memo that was sent out, whoever wrote that up made some slight errors.    For instance,  they wrote up "lane splitting"  as follows :
 
What Is Lane Splitting? 

Lane splitting is another motorcycle-specific traffic rule. It allows motorcyclists to essentially ride the barrier between two lanes, cutting in between other vehicles that are stopped or moving at a slow rate of speed. Contrary to popular belief -- and some say, to common sense -- a study performed by the University of Southern California several years ago proves that evasive action like that seen in lane splitting actually makes the roadways safer for motorcyclists, preventing them from being sandwiched between cars and letting them avoid inhaling copious amounts of toxic exhaust fumes. 

Now.....We as motorcyclists are aware that splitting or sharing is not legal......or illegal.....   in other words there is nothing in the CVC that prohibits it,   HOWEVER according to CHP officers,  "straddling" or passing between lanes by popping back and forth from lane to lane to lane  IS  against the law by way of CVC 21658 -A   which reads  " 
Laned Roadways 
21658.  Whenever any roadway has been divided into two or more clearly marked lanes for traffic in one direction, the following rules apply: 

(a) A vehicle shall be driven as nearly as practical entirely within a single lane and shall not be moved from the lane until such movement can be made with reasonable safety". 
 
Could you do it and get away with it ??? Maybe......Could you do it and be given a citation ??? Maybe.
