Relief could be coming to motorcycle riders caught in our region’s daily bumper-to-bumper traffic. A new bill that would allow a form of lane-splitting is getting a hearing on Monday.
Washington lawmakers are considering a modified version of lane-splitting in the Senate. Riders would be able to overtake, or pass, cars in their same lane. They will be restricted to driving no more than 10 mph faster than the rest of traffic and no more than 35 mph total.
