A proposed bill to allow motorcycles to "split lanes" has been rejected by a Democrat controlled House Panel in Colorado, according to The Daily Sentinel. The measure, introduced by Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt, R-Colorado Springs, never made it out of the House Transportation & Energy Committee, controlled by the Democrats.
The reason? Lawmakers said State Troopers voiced opposition and that Colorado drivers were not "used to it."
The Bill would have limited motorcyclists from riding between cars when they are traveling no more than 5 mph, but restricting those motorcycles to no faster than 15 mph.
