Lane Positions
In some ways, the size of the motorcycle can work to your advantage. Each traffic lane gives a motorcycle three paths of travel, as indicated in the illustration.
LANE POSITIONS
Your lane position should:
Increase your ability to see and be seen.
Avoid others' blind spots.
Protect your lane from other drivers.
Communicate your intentions.
Help you avoid wind blasts from other vehicles.
Provide an escape route.
Select the appropriate lane posi-
tion to maximize your space
cushion and make yourself more
visible to others.
In general, there is no "best lane position" for motorcycle riders to be seen and maintain a space
cushion around the motorcycle.
Position yourself in the lane that allows the most visibility and space around you. Change your lane position as traffic situa- tions change. Ride in paths 2 or
3 if vehicles and other potential problems are on your left side. If vehicles are on both sides of you, the center of the lane (path 2) is usually the best option. Riding closer to the center portion of your lane helps to keep other vehicles from sharing the lane.
The oily strip in the center por- tion of the lane is usually no more than two feet wide. You can ride just to the left or right of the oily strip and still be within the center of the lane. Avoid riding on oil and grease buildups.
Vehicle (HOV) Lanes
A carpool lane is a special free- way lane used only for carpools, buses, motorcycles, or decaled low-emission vehicles. The pave- ment in this lane is marked with diamond symbol and the words
"Carpool Lane." These lanes are also known as high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes. Do not cross over double parallel lines to enter or exit any carpool lane except at designated entry or exit places. Motorcyclists are allowed to use lanes, unless otherwise posted.
