June 7, 2012

Today, Brig. Gen. Vincent A. Coglianese, commanding general of Marine Corps Installations West – Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, published a policy letter prohibiting motorcycle lane-splitting aboard all MCI West bases and stations.

The policy states that motorcycles and motorized scooters traveling in the unused space between two lines of moving or stationary vehicles is commonly referred to as lane-splitting, lane-sharing, white-lining or filtering.  MCI West – MCB CamPen will refer to it as “lane-splitting.”  Lane-splitting is prohibited aboard MCI West – MCB CamPen installations.  Passing on the right, riding on the shoulder, riding in a designated emergency lane or crossing over the fog line (except when permitted by law) is also prohibited.
