Motorcycle Lane Splitting

Motorcyclists often overtake or filter forward through lanes of stopped or slowed traffic, and this is known as lane splitting. In Arizona and in almost every state in America, this practice is illegal due to the dangers of other drivers losing track of the motorcyclists positions in traffic.

The controversy over this practices rages between drivers of vehicles with two and four wheels motorcyclists argue that it eases road congestion, while passenger car drivers complain of the likelihood a crash will occur.

Consequences of Lane Splitting

Lane splitting may appeal to the rider who wants to cut down on time spent in traffic, but it is a dangerous practice that can cause severe injury to motorcyclists and passenger car drivers alike.

Some of the most common injuries associated with lane splitting include:

Broken jaw


Facial disfiguration

Fractured wrist



Road rash

Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI)

Strains and sprains

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

and many others.

The injuries that motorcyclists sustain are oftentimes more serious because they have no physical barrier between their bodies and the road. Consequently, riders who lane split are putting themselves at greater risk for death and life-altering injury when they do so.
