That makes no sense. If they change lanes into the front quarter panel of my car and the impact is behind their front door, they would still be at fault. The only thing I could have done in that situation would be to brake which would increase the odds that the impact is behind their front door. If that is truly the law, then my only real option would be to accelerate thereby ensuring the impact is behind my front door.

I am shaking my head, but then again, that is the state where Obama came from.

It doesn't make any sense. I was told this by a police officer. I rear ended someone that slammed on their brakes in front of me to turn into a business and didn't use a turn signal. I was ticketed. I argued with the police and that is what I was told. So I looked it up, and sure enough, that's the law, the whole behind the front doors thing. And yeah, IL is pretty messed up state. The problem is the entire state is run by one city of corrupt politicians.

I don't want to watch the video, but from what I have seen of lane splitting, a majority of them are riding WAY faster than I'd deem safe/feel comfortable riding myself. Either way, I hope the rider is ok and gets back in the saddle

thats because like most news you only see the bad parts of it.... after over 8+ years of lane splitting in a state where it isnt even legal (tho i do it at a slow safe speed) ive never had a wreck or had anyone turn into me like in this video.....
if you look there is tons of videos of people splitting just fine and safe....there just not as shocking to watch so there not on the live leaks and what not....

yes im a guy. and i have a husband
Silvie=latin for. Of the forest /woods. Fox= Vulpine (also my middle name)

no doubt, I know how the mind and the media works.. Like the Bruins throwing **** on the ice and hitting their team with beers.... Animals, right? But what about the 12,000 fans that didn't throw stuff.

I'm not against lane splitting, I just don't feel that comfortable doing it because people could get angry, spiteful, etc. Tempers flare so easily out on the streets... Over nothing! It's an EASY risk to avoid.... Just, don't do it. But, my main thing watching those videos is how freakin fast those people are splitting lanes of stopped traffic. BALLS
