“Lane filtering is defined as motorcycles moving between lanes of slow or stationary traffic. This not only eases traffic congestion for everyone, it is six times safer for motorcyclists.

Authorities recognise the benefits of lane filtering but have permitted legal ambiguity about it (EU MAIDS Final Report 2.0, comparing fatalities from motorcycles stopped in traffic to motorcycles filtering, 2009).

It’s time to take a longer look at lane filtering.

This is an appeal to road authorities from Australia’s motorcyclists, supported by Maurice Blackburn Lawyers and the Australian Motorcycle Council.”

This video is advocating for lane filtering. This is different to the practice of lane splitting (also known white-lining and lane sharing), which is defined as riders moving between lanes of traffic at high speed.
