I lane split every single day, but never with cars in motion...only exception is when they are just starting from a light and I can safely get between them and escape the jam.

That's it.

On the other hand, there are no highways where I live. Highways are a great place to get a terribly dangerous false sense of security, as speeds don't seem as high as they really are. You cruise at 70mph and it seems so nice...

Be careful out there.

Keep your head up, be scanning several cars ahead, and look for driver's small movements. That generally telegraphs their next move. If you find yourself caught by surprise very often, you're just not good at it from an intuitive level, and should back off from it.

If you're going to stop lane-sharing at 70 mph please do a favour for those that go a little faster, and get out of the lane-sharing position between the #1 and #2 lanes.

A little bored? Try splitting semi-tractors - that's kinda fun if you are finding life a little dull.
