The day I read Daddio's thread about being pulled over, I got pulled over. I ride a long street in LA called Santa Fe and on the way home when the traffic backs up, I usually end up splitting lanes. There are two lanes in each direction. Lots of buses & trucks, so passing on the curb side seems more dangerous to me. A cop waiting in traffic must have seen me coming up from behind because before I reached him, he turned on the lights (no siren) and signaled with his hand for me to stop. He told me that I was riding "illegally". I told him that it was my understanding that I could split lanes. He didn't answer my question, he just said, "Regardless, you were riding dangerously. Be careful." No ticket, not a bad guy. Now I ask you all: Can we legally split lanes in CA?

I added a few pics. I see that old lady pushing her husband in the wheelchair almost every day. Notice who has the green light.

Later,

you can legally split lanes on a motorcycle in CA. at least when i lived there.

not sure for bicycles, though.

i got a ticket on my bike once in CA. running stopsigns. $100. i went to court to make sure the points didnt go on my drivers license. judge allowed that.

Yikes

I am almost afraid to post, I am hoping for good luck as I have traffic court today 50 in a 35 :rolleyes: ! I have to get them to remove the points, hoping for PBJ than I'll be a good girl.

Love the pics, what kind of bar tape is that?

Stella Azzurra Eleganza

The bar tape is actually Stella Azzurra Eleganza. It's nice and grippy and looks pretty cool. I love it.

That Douglas tape looks pretty cool. The Stella Azzurra, like all their stuff, is more expensive.

Zeytin, I hope everything worked out well for you today!

See you later,

Very nice, I might have to get some. Thank you things did, I got a PBJ, reduced fine, and no points! WooHoo, to celebrate I went and did some NNC.
