Last year, for the first time, the California Highway Patrol posted safety guidelines for motorcyclists who ride in the space between lanes of cars to avoid traffic. The practice, called lane splitting, is controversial but legal. Earlier this month the CHP removed the guidelines without an explanation, sparking renewed public debate over lane splitting and motorcycle safety.
