#420: Drivers moving over for motorcycle slot riders

I actually am in favor of the CA law allowing lane-splitting so motorcycles can benefit in slow traffic.  I do think that there should be a speed restriction to around 40 MPH or so for the traffic to be at for them to do it.  But in any regard, my annoyance is at the drivers who, when they see a motorcycle coming up behind them splitting the lane and they are in the far left lane, move WAY over to the left to give them more room.  Don't coddle these guys.  They are big boys and know you should be going out of your way to make it easier for them.  I'm not going to purposely block them, but I will not cater to their whims, especially given they do it often when traffic is already moving a nice pace.  Severity: 5
