now to an investigative unit exclusive - ==laura/2shot== during your morning commute, chances are you might spot a motorcycle zooming past traffic by now to an investigative unit exclusive. during the morning commute chances are you might spot a motorcycle traveling in between lanes. it's called lane splitting.
>> the bikers will have to follow new laws signed by governor brown. is it enough to protect you on the roadway. investigative reporter has the story and joins us now. >> good morning. the maneuver is called lane splitting. california is the only state in the country where it's legal. if you're trying to determine how safe it is, you probably want to know how often lane splitting accidents occur. we discovered california doesn't track that. for years the state has allowed lane splitting without knowing how often people got injured or even died. california did start tracking that information for a period to study the issue but then stopped. after our investigation, assemb assemblyman bill quirk of hayward hopes to change that. he imposed a bill that would institute speed guidelines for lane splitting. last year california released the first and only report on lane splitting crashes. it looked at nearly 6,000
motorcycle accidents over a 14-month period. lane splitting played a role 17% of the time. that ended three years ago and they haven't kept track since. citizens don't understand how the state plans to make it safer if they don't understand. >> if you have a tip for our investigative unit, give us a call. coming up next a hot cup of joe sounds good about now. this one comes with a specialty. a look at a unique barista's talents. and we'd like to welcome the
