CHP provides first written rules on motorcycle lane-splitting

Can not go faster than 10 MPH

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -  

The California Highway Patrol has created the first written guidelines on motorcycle "lane-splitting," the maneuver by which cyclists pass vehicles in adjacent lanes by driving between them.
 
The Sacramento Bee reports that California is the only state that allows lane-splitting.
 
The guidelines say motorcyclists can ride between two cars if there is room, but only at speeds no more than 10 miles-per-hour faster than the vehicles they're passing.
