    The time span could be shorter since one in seven "residents" of the US are Californians..

    A mini version of road rage over who gets to go first can be observed on the loading especially in the Summer months on the Washington State Ferries. Cager lines can get long at some terminals. Loading procedures and sequencing is based on safety. In order are:

    Walkons (pedestrians) who for the most part don't congregate on the vehicle deck. 100% you may ask? Nope.. The WSFS is very democratic even to the clueless.

    Bicycles and riders. These go to the front of the boat.

    Motorcycles.. Same deal front, of the boat. Offloading follows suit.

    Where the brown stuff hits the props is that motorcycles can "lane split" the long cage lines to a staging area on the dock or waiting area and when the cagers see us dudes on bikes "jumping" the lines, road/roid rage sets in.

    What is funny is that complaints can be lodged via text or laptop or half a dozen other ways to the headshead in bureaucracy caves and under the State Transportation regs these complaints must be accounted for and responded to..

    The State of Washington has some new traffic regs built around cell use that are gonna be interesting. Eating and I guess eyebrow plucking are now verboten whislt driving or in many cases a facsimile of driving..

    How does WA state respond to cager road rage complaints about bikes splitting to the front of the line? Do they hand out crayons and coloring books and have everybody sit around a campfire singing kum ba yah?

    Sorry, but I would not hold your breath on a lane-splitting bill passing. I just don't see it happening without you "smokin' some congressman pole" to get enough floor time for a vote. States have been trying it for years, but the bills just keep on fumbling. Maybe if more of those crooks (politicians) rode it would be a different story though?

    Any pending bill can be accessed via a state's website. This includes all the WWWW&H stuff and specific names for or agin.. Pole smoking is optional if one is so inclined.
