Is lane splitting legal in North Carolina?

Lane splitting, sometimes also called “filtering” or “white lining,” refers to steering a motorcycle in between two lanes of traffic traveling in the same direction. Some motorcyclists do this to avoid congestion, but lane splitting can be dangerous. So many states have laws against the practice.

North Carolina law, however, makes no specific mention of lane splitting. This means that even though lane splitting may be discouraged, it is not specifically prohibited by law.
