Lane Splitting (Que Jumping)
Eric commented: Every once in a while people like to argue about why lane splitting or filtering should be legal. In my experience, people that make a habit of passing cars on the right, whether in a designated bicycle lane or not, have many “interesting” stories about how dangerous bicycling is. So, when I arrive at a line of stopped cars, I get in line behind them. This, of course “wastes time”, but I can assure you that the small amount of time I waste waiting for the light to change is nothing compared to the time this man will be wasting. Hazard a guess as to which statute they charged this fellow with?
It is difficult to understand the exact circumstances from the article. Depending on the circumstances, que-jumping or lane splitting can be safe and legal, usually due to lane width. Cyclists regularly do it in other circumstances which are not legal or safe. See these posts and the article on CommuteOrlando.com
