Well, it is "legal" in the sense that there are no laws restricting the practice. And even the highway patrol split lanes as well. Plus, local PD turn out of the way to give you room even.
Now, whoever rides that fast while traffic is practically stopped is crazy. Lots of people do it, but not me. My rule is about 10mph over the flow of traffic. This usually gives plenty of time to stop. Plus, you are vigilantly watching for mirrors and openings.
WOW what an ID10T!! Max 20mph over traffic speed and if you can't see all the vehicles SLOW DOWN!! The van should have checked his mirror but all the rest of the traffic was stopped so probably didn't because of that.. Also it looked like they were using their turn signal too.. Squid move from a knob who wasn't paying attention. Maybe getting the bike fixed will give them time to learn how to avoid the next time.
