Ok, folks, for what it is worth, there is no lane splitting law for or against in California. California code is such that if it is not specifically prohibited in statute, it is tolerated/permitted/not-illegal/whatever. The CHP has written some guidelines for if you do this here are the best practices, but if an accident occurs, it is the splitter that gets the ticket (assuming they are alive). Most other states, Oregon included, have a structure to their laws that if it is not specifically permitted in statute, then it is prohibited. I know it may seem like splitting hairs (no pun intended), but if you go to your respective state legislatures asking for splitting/filtering and say "it is legal in CA, you might get embarrassed, as the reality is that it is "not illegal".
