CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Nevada lawmakers are considering allowing motorcyclists and mopeds riders to drive between lanes when traffic grinds to a standstill -- so long as they don't go too fast.
The issue will be discussed when the Senate Transportation Committee takes up AB236 Friday.
Current law only affords the time-saving privilege to on-duty police officers.
This bill would open that up to any motorcycle or moped riders who are mindful of the driving conditions and don't go too fast. Drivers would be permitted to go 10 mph faster than the rest of traffic -- up to a maximum of 30 mph.
The bill was already approved by the Assembly.
