Is Motorcycle Lane Splitting Illegal In New York?

March 26, 2022

Many of us have been stuck in traffic and thought about operating (and actually operated) our motorcycles in between cars or on the shoulder to get around traffic.  The police refer to this as “lane splitting” and in most cases its illegal in New York. 

If you’re involved in a crash, many times the other driver and the police attempt to use the “lane splitting” defense as a way to prove the motorcyclist to be at fault for his or her injuries. 

“Lane splitting” may be illegal, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a case.  There are many factors in proving negligence.  If you’re injured in a motorcycle crash, call or text a motorcycle law professional - John Wright, Esq. (585) 632-2222.
