California is one of two states that actually allows lane sharing for motorcyclists. Called filtering or lane splitting, essentially lane sharing enables motorcyclists to pass between cars on multi-lane roads. While most auto drivers believe that motorcyclists are crazy and that this practice leads to increased motorcycle crashes, actual government sponsored studies have shown that lane sharing is LESS risky for motorcyclists than getting stuck in stop-and-go traffic, and the CHP say that lane sharing is fine as long as it is done in a safe and prudent manner.
