Is lane-splitting allowed in Washington?

Part of the thrill that comes with riding your motorcycle in and around Seattle is the freedom that it provides. Traditional vehicles can often seem to restricting given the limitations that their size imposes. You, on the other hand, have the freedom to negotiate traffic in in a much easier manner. Yet exactly how far does that freedom extend? the topic of lane-splitting is often a controversial one. While the distance separating two vehicles traveling in adjacent lanes may offer you ample room to pass between them, what does the law say about it? 

Statute of limitations for car accidents in Washington

Virtually everyone will end up in a car accident at some point in their lives. You hope for something relatively minor, but unfortunately, many people end up sustaining serious injuries. That was the recent case for four teenagers who suffered serious injuries and required hospitalization in Whatcom County. 

Driver fatigue and motorcycle collisions

Motorcycle accidents have many causes, whether they happen because someone driving a passenger vehicle was ignoring the speed limit or a motorcyclist was struggling to operate their motorcycle properly due to inexperience. Fatigue plays a major role in traffic collisions, and the consequences of driver fatigue can be especially dangerous when it comes to motorcycle wrecks. Drivers who are tired may have difficulty noticing motorcyclists and they may collide with them after veering into oncoming traffic or failing to switch lanes properly. Sadly, this has led to the loss of many lives, and countless injuries.
