Lane Splitting – the practice of going between cars moving slowly or at a standstill while riding a motorcycle – has been a common technique used by motorcyclists for years. Motorcycle rider advocates in Texas cite studies that show that lane splitting contributes to a significant reduction of rear-end rider fatalities. They also say that it can reduce rider fatalities, improve rider safety, and reduce traffic congestion.

But what does Texas law say about lane splitting?

Well, not much – at least not yet.

However, in case of accident, they can leave the rider completely devastated with injuries, as they are far less protective than a vehicle with four wheels.

This is why it is so absolutely vital  to wear a helmet at all times. Even if you are one of the most careful riders on the road, you cannot ensure everyone else on the road is following these rules as adamantly as you are. Therefore, the risks of accident or injury are high.

In fact, being involved a bicycle or motorcycle accident without the protection of a helmet can not only result in devastating brain, facial, or head injuries, and these injuries can absolutely be fatal. Victims of head injuries who are lucky enough to survive are often left bereft of much of the quality of their life. Now more than ever, laws are governing for motorcyclists and bicyclists to wear a helmet the same way a driver is asked to wear a seatbelt – it is just as, if not more, important.
