Michigan motorcycle laws prohibit “lane splitting”?
Motorcycle accidents happen fast. Suddenly, your life can instantly change forever. Sometimes, accidents happen when a motorcyclist rides in between two lanes of traffic. Riders call this practice “lane splitting.” Is it legal? Who’s liable?
Depends who you ask. According to some experts, “lane splitting” is against the law in every state across the country except California. That certainly seems to be the case in Michigan. The state’s laws seem to clearly prohibit lane splitting in Michigan.
