Two months ago we wrote to you about efforts underway to legalize basic lane-splitting in Oregon. While the bill has considerable support in the Oregon State Legislature, HB2314 is stuck in the joint transportation committee.
In order to get HB2314 the vote that it deserves, the motorcycling public of the Pacific Northwest needs to reach out to the members of the committee leadership as well as Speaker of the House Tina Kotek.
Thankfully, the folks behind the Oregonian lane-splitting bill have made it very easy for us to reach our representatives, so that they can see the support the motorcycle community has for this bill.
To achieve this goal, all we need from you is to go to laneshareoregon.com and click the “get involved” button that is on the front page, and follow the instruction. I literally just did all this while typing this story, and it took less than a minute to complete – the website does basically all the work for you. NO EXCUSES, DO IT NOW.
In the coming days, the lobbyist team for HB2314 will be visiting all of applicable legislators in person in Salem. The support will pressure the committee leadership to give HB2314 the vote it deserves. If the bill gets a vote, it’s going to pass.
