Utah introduces Lane Filtering

TLDR: On roads with multiple lanes in same direction where the speedlimit is 45mph or under, when cars are stopped you may pass them between the lanes riding at 15mph or under.


For my fellow Utah riders, effective 2019 May 14, lane filtering will be legal, defined as the following:

383 (5) An individual may engage in lane filtering only when the following conditions
384 exist:
385 (a) the individual is operating a motorcycle;
386 (b) the individual is on a roadway divided into two or more adjacent traffic lanes in the
387 same direction of travel;
388 (c) the individual is on a roadway with a speed limit of 45 miles per hour or less;
389 (d) the vehicle being overtaken in the same lane is stopped;
390 (e) the motorcycle is traveling at a speed of 15 miles per hour or less; and
391 (f) the movement may be made safely.

Lane filtering will be legal from 2019 May 14 until 2022 July 01 unless the provisions are renewed or established permanently.

Yea, I saw that and wondered how strictly the rules will be enforced, and how the typical overly aggressive driver will feel about it if they missed the change in the law?
I've never lived where it was legal, so I guess I'll have to start working on my technique.

Filtering has been legal in the UK for many years, but a large section of the car driving community dont like it because the bike is making progress and they are not.

I'm genuinely worried about it. I need to think about how and when I'll use it. I recognize the safety concern that has led to filtering being adopted. But cagers' road rage isn't so quantifiable as bikers getting rear ended. This is why the provision will be reevaluated and has automatic sunset.

Itís great if used properly. I never get frustrated on a bike in traffic whilst I do in the car sometimes.
I especially like the bit in the law saying the inside lane has to be stationary. Over here most of the accidents now happen because the cages thinks the other lane is moving faster so they change lanes without looking.
Keeping the speed down is a good idea too. We have too many numpties on bikes going up the middle at 70 mph.
Letís face it. If a car is stationary it canít change lanes very quick and if you are only doing 15 mph you should be able to stop pretty quick if a car does pull out.
Even at 15 mph you get to the front of the trouble pretty quick and then you can carry on your normal journey
