Re: [ST] RE: [ST] Re: Laugh or Cry / lane splitting

Many large metropolitan areas in the States have an extra lane for each
direction of travel. This lane is typically to the inside, or middle
(median) of the motorway (highway, super slab, etc.). Here in Phoenix,
Arizona, travel in this extra lane is restricted, between the hours of 6-9AM
& 3-7PM, to Heavily Overloaded Vehicles. Just kidding, that's High Occupancy
Vehicles, which means a minimum of two people, and even infants seem to
count, although the intent is to accommodate, and show favoritism to,
carpoolers, vanpoolers and busses. That courtesy is also extended to a solo
rider on a motorcycle.
