So I was running a bit late for work this morning .Then the obvious happens. Hit all the red lights , waited at the train-crossing, get stuck behind the school bus stopping to pick up kids. OK..
Finally I hit the interstate only to get stuck behind what I like to call the Mormon Blockade.
3 or four drivers who feel it is their civic duty to regulate traffic flow by driving less than a car length next to each other, all traveling about 62 MPH. :kill: Is anyone aware if lane splitting is legal in Utah?

Do you know why Mormons bury their dead 10 feet deep?

The majority of cops that I have had the pleasure of meeting around here tend to have the little man with big belly , small dick , gun and a badge syndrome. Buford T Justice BOY. Granted these are the interactions with the cops that pull you over for running drag pipes, no mirrors, signals etc. etc.
Would probably get the 10 squad car swarm for splitting if it is illegal here. " ON THE GROUND BOY!!!"

Fuck a bunch of Utah, beautiful state but man what a pain the 15 can be. I've had to drive through Utah a few times and every time it's been a mess on the 15. Best thing was when we had to stop for gas at some place in the middle of no where maybe 100 miles north of the Nevada state line, they sent someone in to "check on" my tattoo'd wife to make sure that the 6 month pregnant lady wasn't shooting up in the bathroom.

Can most def. relate to that. Very sheltered, naive, backward state for the most part.
Not being one of "them" you have to become immune to being shot the 'stink eye' on the daily .
I must say though ,some Mo's are the most down to earth, honest, generous people I know.
Just hard to get used to talking like Ned Flanders around them. "dingely,dangely"

An asshole's an asshole. I hate the civilian police. The jerk at the light that purposely pinches you off when trying to split lanes. Or the asshole that wants to race you? For what ever reason Motorcycles really hit a nerve with some people.

On the topic of Mormons, though I find their whole belief system wacky as all hell my opinion is the same for all religions. To each their own. For those of you who might not know Jeff Decker is a proud Mormon and one of my personal heroes. so with that said... An Asshole is an Asshole. :p

Jason Jessee is a mormon too, personally I think it's more them being douchecanoes and less of just being mormon, but it can't be helping either

haha sorry, I just re-read that too, idiot me. I'd say its more of the people being assholes and blocking traffic and not them being mormon doing it.
Maybe I just went at it from the wrong direction, sorry folks!

Joseph Smith's birthplace is right at the bottom of the highway exit to my farm. I used to ride there on Sunday mornings until I realized how much of a jerk my ripping around the chapel while services were going on was...
One of the best rides in the northeast is known as the Mormon pilgrimage - goes from J. Smith's birthplace to Brigham Young's - along the Conn River, it is dynamite...

Not really trying to bash Mormons. The Morman Blockade is just one of my playful nick names for things around here as I live in the Morman Mecca. Assholes are Assholes. Guess I'm kind of an asshole for naming it that.

We call them chinese road blocks up here.
Same concept. 2 people driving almost the same speed blocking up both lanes preventing you from getting by....

I've always enjoyed driving in Utah cause they actually seem to leave the fast lane open for passing and not clogging it up with people driving 59 mph.

As a way of bringing in another topic: as a member of the Temple Riders Association, if we see someone wearing a collarless denim vest he will be politely asked to take it off before we proceed to put the boots to 'em. Just sayin'

So, Im curious. What is the Temple Riders Association and what does it have to do with Mormon blockades? Also, what is the problem with wearing a collarless vest that would cause a group that sounds like the MormonMotoCult to want to bring violence to you?

I've met a lot of Mormons, even dated one for years (non-member myself) and I don't recall any of them being particularly violent people.

I believe he is making fun of the "temple riders association'' its a group of older mormon folks who ride to mormon temples.

Not making fun, but alittle humor doesn't hurt when religion gets brought up. Plus we aren't all old, and Mormons aren't all cookie cutter as this guy shows. Not that you made that comment.

The really good Mormons make it tough for us sucky ones. :) I think many people would be surprised to know that we are just as different as any other religious group. No body would suspect I was LDS just by looking at me, just the opposite infact.

To answer the original question, I'm pretty sure lane splitting is only legal in Cali.
