Motorcycles are allowed to split lanes all over the world. It keeps traffic flowing in Bangkok, it helps deliver lunches in India, and when Australia tried to make it illegal, the uproar was so fierce politicians caved to public demand. But of the 50 states in this glorious place called America, only one allows lane-splitting. Let's change that.

A petition has been submitted to the White House's We The People page to allow lane splitting throughout the country. It opened earlier this month and ends on the 1st of the year, and so far it's only garnered a little over 7,000 of the 100,000 necessary signatures to get a response from the administration. We can do better than that, so click on these oddly colored words to help the cause.
