From the California Driver's Handbook
I have probably posted this before

Lane Splitting

The term lane splitting, sometimes known as lane sharing, filtering, or white-lining refers to the process of a motorcyclist riding between lanes of stopped or slower-moving traffic or moving between lanes to the front of traffic stopped at a traffic light.
Lane splitting should not be performed by inexperienced riders. When choosing to lane split, skilled motorcycle riders should consider the following:

Traffic flow – Travel at a speed that is no more than 10 mph faster than other traffic; danger increases at higher speed differentials. Lane splitting is not advised when traffic flow is at 30 mph or faster; danger increases as overall speed increases.
Traffic lanes – Lane splitting is encouraged to be done between the #1 and #2 lanes; typically, it is safer to lane split in these lanes than between other lanes.
Environment – The total environment should be considered, including the width of the lanes, size of surrounding vehicles, the roadway, weather, and lighting conditions.
Hazards – Riders should anticipate possible movements by other road users and be alert at all times.

NOTE:These general guidelines assume a high level of riding competency and experience and do not guarantee to keep you safe. Every rider has the ultimate responsibility for his or her own decision making and safety. Riders must be conscious of reducing crash risk at all times.

if something is NOT illegal, that means it is legal.

Now if a cop wants to get you, they can get you on something else. However they cannot cite you for legal activity. Please please please get the facts straight and do not confuse people.

They can site you for riding too fast for conditions, or reckless driving, but that's about it, and I find myself splitting lanes with cops all the time. They do not ever bother me for the two things I mentioned.

Only once, back in the 70's did I have a dispute with a cop over lane splitting, and he lost in court. For good reason, he was a lying sack of snake s#!t, and it caught up with him. He was an LA city cop too by the way, never an issue with the CHP, they ride, and they are more like us than like cops.
