Many California motorists are frightened by lane splitting motorcyclists. The reasons can be obvious since motorcyclists are small and fast. Likewise, they may be jealous having to sit in traffic while motorcyclists zip along between lanes that are right between cars. When car drivers are jurors in motorcycle accident lawsuits, they may attribute fault to the biker for failing to act reasonably under heavy traffic conditions, even when the biker has done nothing wrong. This is called “bias” and it is a form of prejudice against motorcycle drivers.
