As your favorite motorcycle lawyers, we feel the need to inform you about the new motorcycle law, HB-4122.
As of September 1, 2023, the bill HB-4122 will go into effect. HB-4122 states that lane splitting and lane filtering are now illegal for motorcycles riding in Texas. The law does make an exception to allow two motorcycles to ride side-by-side in the same lane. There is also an exception for police officers performing official duties.
Before this law was enacted, lane splitting and lane filtering were not considered legal. They were also not entirely illegal. This bill makes it clear what is legal and illegal.
State Representative Ryan Guillen introduced the bill in March 2023. Both the state House and the state Senate signed in May 2023. Governor Abbot signed the bill into law on June 12, 2023.
