California-style motorcycle law could be coming to Utah

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah motorists need to "start seeing motorcycles," as the bumper sticker urges, because they soon may be traveling between lanes.

The state Legislature is considering a bill that would allow motorcyclists to travel between lanes of traffic on Utah roads in certain situations.

HB410 would permit lane splitting — passing a vehicle moving the same direction in the same lane — when motorcyclists determine they can safely make the move without exceeding 40 mph.

Motorcyclists' safety and Utah's lax helmet laws became quick topics of concern when the bill was presented Tuesday to the House Transportation Committee. The panel of lawmakers ultimately voted 7-2 to advance the bill to the full House for consideration.

Rep. Gage Froerer, R-Huntsville, the bill's sponsor, called on physical therapist and motorcyclist Dave Moss to help present the bill and answer many of the questions from the committee.
