CMSP on Lane Guidelines - Update

3/21/2017 After a 3 Hour Meeting today the Motorcycle Rider Groups and Dealers united to Vote on Sending a Minimum of 15 MPH & 50 MPH on the Higher end to the CHP Commissioner. We went through word by word Guidelines and Educational Materials produced by CHP and these will be finalized/mailed a week before our next meeting in April to the Advisory Committee Members for our review and vote. CHP has told the MRSPvgroup that while guidelines are being developed “as long as Riders in CA Lane Split at a Safe and Prudent Speed, they will not be cited". James Lombardo Sr. Lobbyist for ABATE of CA is a Member of the Advisory Committee and will be Voting on this issue when they are presented. 

3/16/2017 The CMSP has received approval to meet and start developing new lane splitting guidelines - no Date for the Meeting has been set. The new guidelines are to be developed by a working group comprised of CMSP Advisory Committee members, which we are apart of. We will keep you updated as we met, discuss and debate the proposals. 

3/21/2017  The CMSP Yellow/Orange Hi-Vis vests SubCommittee Meeting has been pushed back until after June. Another Issue that was brought up is Hi-Visibility Yellow/Orange Vest for Riders. A sub-committee was formed to discuss the idea, your Lobbyist is a Voting member of this Committee as well and it needs to have full CMSP Committee Approval before the CHP could Proceed."
