Answer:

Lane splitting refers to moving through congested traffic on your motorcycle – essentially, driving between two lanes of congested traffic. Different states have their laws regarding this kind of behavior. In Texas, the law doesn’t expressly forbid or allow lane splitting. Because of this, determining liability in an auto accident caused by lane splitting will be more difficult, and will likely require citing relevant case law.

There was a bill proposed by Senator John Carona back in 2009 which would have allowed motorcycles to lane split, but the measure died in committee. The is a new bill proposed for 2015 which would also allow lane splitting if passed.
