Nothing else should be said. You need to ask yourself this: "Do I have a good gut instinct when I drive?" If you don't then I don't recommend you split too often. I don't care what anyone says but when you drive long enough and dedicate 100% of your attention to your road, there is a weird connection you develop with the energy around you. Sometimes i predict 2-3 seconds before someone plans to change lanes. I'm not even talking about tail gators.
What the fuck were you doing lane splitting at 70 mph?
There's your problem.
NJ traffic is comparable to Ca traffic.
And there are times when 70 is slow. For sure. Do it isn't that I am unfamiliar with roads like that.
But if you are doing 70. There is absolutely no reason to lane split. None. 70 is more than sufficient to.get you to your final destination.
I personally feel that if I am splitting at 30 mph I should merge back in and proceed with the flow of traffic. If I am doing 10-15-20 and traffic is obviously slower that's fine. But beyond your general impatience there is no reason you cannot travel at 30 mph fairly safely WITH the flow if traffic.
I personally feel that lane splitting above 30-40 ( and I feel 40 is a stretch) is completely un-necessary and voids the "its safer than sitting in traffic" argument. If you HAVE to do 40 to split and keep ahead of moving traffic... Then your just being impatience. And splitting in 0-5 mph traffic at 40 is obviously unsafe and if I have to explain that we haw bigger issues.
