This Is Why You Should Always Check Your Mirrors Before Changing Lanes
It's easy not to think about it in a car, but the road is a very dangerous place. Even hitting someone with a car at 40mph will give them an 80% chance of the incident being fatal. Well, according to that 'THINK!' advert, although that has been put under scrutiny for exaggeration.
As you can see in the video below, this motorcyclist was lane splitting through traffic. The video was recorded in LA where lane splitting is technically not illegal, so this driver has no excuse. We're not even sure if the car signals before changing lanes, and because of their poor driving, they knock a motorcyclist off of his bike, leaving him face down in front of moving traffic.
Thank fully he wasn't seriously hurt.
What are your thoughts on lane splitting? Do you think it's unnecessary, or do you think it improves the safety of bikers?
