Sample Letter to Senators on the Transportation Committee

Senator,

As a voter and motorcyclist in the State of Texas I ask that you demonstrate your support for SB 273 (Relating to the operation and movement of motorcycles on certain highways during periods of traffic congestion) by voting in favor of a committee report recommending the passage of the bill.

The bill will enable Texas motorcycle riders to split lanes at a speed no more than 5 mph faster than other vehicles if traffic is moving slower than 20 mph on limited and controlled access roadways.

A study by UC Berkeley has reported 50% fewer motorcyclist fatalities occur where lane splitting (or filtering) is allowed.  In addition the practice has proven to significantly reduce traffic congestion.

Your vote is a vote to save the lives of fellow citizens!

Thank you for your support,
