California Assembly member Bill Quirk has sponsored a bill that would make it officially legal for lane splitting in the state of California. The bill AB 51 was passed and signed by Governor Jerry Brown on August 19, 2016. It officially defines lane splitting (also referred to as lane sharing) and authorizes the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to come up with safety guidelines.
