California Motorcycle Laws
Motorcycle laws in the State of California are slightly different than they are in some other states. The law requires that you always wear a helmet. It needs to be an approved helmet, which means that you can’t wear novelty helmets. California also allows lane sharing, which means that the motorcycles will be able to drive between the cars in the lane. One of the reasons the state allows this is that motorcycle engines are air-cooled. In warm states like California, being able to drive between the cars helps to keep the engine cool. Not doing so could cause the motorcycle to stall on the road, which could cause an accident.

However, other drivers are often at fault in these types of accidents. The driver might not see the motorcyclist, or the larger vehicle may have failed to yield. Collisions, defective equipment, unsafe roads, and bends along country roads can cause accidents. Even if a rider knows a stretch of road along the Inland Empire well, defects in the road and equipment lying in the road could cause an accident.
