a motorcycle passing us on our way to Riverside
I didn’t see this question on my test so I guess it could be an unwritten law, I have asked several people and they see nothing out of the ordinary with it heck I actually saw a CHP Motorcycle Officer passing on the white line like he was on his way to something smart even though he had no lights or siren on, didn’t look very smart to me.
In my opinion the white line is a lane divider and if I were riding my bike I sure as heck wouldn’t be riding on that line between cars, things happen too fast and I will not put myself into the situation where I am caught between two cars who are actually in their proper lanes. I know there is a lot of traffic here and the traffic jams are a pain in the rear but I would rather be late getting home than to never make it there because I was stupid.
