Lane-splitting bill hearing scheduled next week
Contact your delegates today!
State Delegate Kathy Szeliga (R-7th) has introduced a bill that would allow lane splitting in Maryland, as well as require state agencies to create guidelines for safe lane splitting and how to incorporate the practice into rider education.
Szeliga’s H.B. 917 has bill has been referred to the House Environment and Transportation Committee and has been scheduled for a hearing at 1p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28.
This is the first time a lane splitting bill has been introduced in Maryland, so it is critical for legislators to hear from motorcyclists about the practice and why it makes riding safer and reduces congestion for other road users.
Send your state delegate a message supporting H.B. 917 before next week’s hearing!
