The drivers that scare me most are the ones that "drive based on others." You know the type: they diddle along in the left lane 5 mph under the speed limit until you finally go around them on the right, then when you go ahead of them they match your speed (and all too often ride your bumper)... "Their confidence is in your rear bumper" as my Dad always put it.

I think that's what's going on here: He saw movement on his right, movement on his left, and decided it must be time to for him to move too.

Lol. I like the pan back and forth like.. Look green lights... for the OTHER people. What an idiot. I had a lady the other day in the right lane on her phone, I was in my truck. I pulled up and stopped and realized I was a little short of the line so I inched up and she did the same thing, just took off through the light when she saw me bump forward.

My favorite is when the left turn arrow turns green and the thru traffic jumps then slams on their brakes.

"filtering to the front" at the light?!

thats not lane splitting, thats just being a jerk.

maybe the guy in the red car saw this motorcycle coming up to him, and thought he was about to be carjacked,
or shot

it IS lane splitting, and it IS legal in California where this took place as is the normal practice for bikers there. how is doing it at a traffic light any worse in your opinion than when traffic is actually moving?

The rider is going 45 to 40mph while passing between the cars.

He is not 'filtering up' at 10mph over the speed of the stopped cars, he is blowing by all of them, still going 35mph when all the cars have stopped.

Read the California definition of lane splitting sometimes.
