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. As such, liability will likely be heavily contested by insurance companies.
There were two attempts to legalize lane splitting (SB 506 in 2009 and SB 442 in 2015), but both died in committee. Again in 2017, a similar bill (SB 288) has been proposed.
