2016 was a very busy year for the California Legislature with over 800 bills signed into law by Governor Brown.  

Three that were approved are of special interest to motorcyclists:

AB 51 (Quirk) - This bill was signed by Governor Brown August 19. This law legalizes lane splitting and establishes a committee to create guidelines. The CMSP and CHP are awaiting direction from the Commissioners to proceed with forming the committee and proceeding with developing guidelines.

AB1932 (Obernolte) - This bill will allow a motorcyclist who has received a ticket for which Traffic Violation School is an option to substitute attending a Motorcycle Safety Program. Either choice will prevent points on your license if passed. 

AB 1785 (Quirk) - A person shall not drive a motor vehicle while holding and  operating a handheld wireless telephone or an electronic wireless communications device unless the wireless telephone or electronic wireless communications device is specifically designed and configured to allow voice-operated and hands-free operation, and it is used in that manner while driving. This shall not apply to a wireless telephone or electronic wireless communications device that is mounted on a vehicle's windshield in the same manner a portable Global Positioning System (GPS) is mounted is operated solely to activate or deactivate a feature or function with the motion of a single swipe or tap of the driver's finger.


 

If you appreciate what we're trying to do for motorcyclists in CA, please consider joining or making a small donation to help us out.  Unfortunately, Freedom isn't free and, although we're a volunteer organization, it still takes money to keep the lights on.
