See Transport NSW's Media Release HERE

The Minister for Roads and Ports, the Honourable Duncan Gay announced in February 2014 that Lane Filtering for Motorcycles in NSW will be legalised as part of a package of changes to help ease road congestion and improve safety by reforming laws for motorcyclists

Lane filtering is the practice of motorcycles moving between stopped or slow-moving cars.

Benefits from lane filtering include reducing the risk of riders being caught up in a rear end collision. Rear enders are a common collision in NSW and can result in a rider being severely injured.

Drivers are reminded to watch both their mirrors and look for motor bikes filtering through the traffic and riders are advised to manage their risk.

Full details of the lane filtering implementation can be found at the Transport for NSW website.
