Apparently you are not much of a forum user. When someone quotes a post, it usually means they are responding to that post. In this case I was responding directly to a post concerning lane splitting.
Mdstudey noted that on the one hand lane splitting is allowed but helmets are required. A situation he/she sees as rather incongruous.
Here are some "facts" for you:
1. People like me. You don't know me, or what I am like
2. Emergency vehicles come equipped with flashing lights and sirens. This is to let you know they are on an emergency call. It doesn't sound like you know this.
3. Your comments are highly judgemental and negative, not based on anything other than a perceived opportunity to show your behind, kindly keep them to yourself.

left lane only

You will never find me in any other lanes other than the left or the 2nd to left lane which will only happen in SoCal on a 3+ lane freeway... with the massive amounts of oncoming cars. Also, never over 55 mph with my 22R Minnie Winnie towing my chevy HHR on the freeways.

Another issue and you probably won't just get stopped to check this, the required breaking system for your toad vehicle. In CA I've been told but not confirmed $1200 fine for no additional break system.

Here's a good resource...

Again here, left lanes are for only passing on a limited access highway with 2 lanes. No signs needed for this.

The fine here is 128.50.. CA is pricey.

Is that the total cost or just the fine. Most of our ticket when broke down there is a fine, fee for court, 911 etc. my son got a registration violation ticket and the fine was $45 but the total ticket was close to $70 or $90

Yup, don't blame the LEO. They gotta make their quota. Sometimes you just pull the short straw.

Also Nailed in California

I was hit with a speeding ticket after entering CA from Oregon. I forget the exact speed but it was over 55. Welcome to CA. I won't ever move back there!

Slow Driving in CA

We just got back from going across Nevada (Vegas) to California (Cardif by the Sea beach). When you hit CA they now have signs stating "Trucks & Autos towing Trailers speed limit 55" also signs saying "Slow trafic stay right". When you try and go 55 it blocks trafic. They also have sighs for the speeding lane changers "No passing on the right" (Trucker lane). 330 miles at 55 mph takes forever. The cops were going for the "Sports car speeders" . Is it me, or are the lanes narrower in CA.

I think this is the catch-all: But notice it says trailer towing.

Yeah that would make sense....I know now I keep it to the right and only doing my passing legally now.....I don't always go 55 towing the trailer I'm usually in the 60-63mph range and never had any problems with the LEO's knock on wood.
