Is "lane-sharing" or "lane-splitting" legal in Portland?


No. The State of Oregon does not have specific regulations prohibiting lane-splitting, but we have provided a link to the State of Oregon regulations regarding lane use, specifically 811.370 and 811.385.

Here is the link to the State of California regulations which does allow lane-splitting.
