Therefore, bikers should assume that their actions will be deemed legal or illegal by state highway patrol on a case-by-case basis. So, even though there may not be a specific law prohibiting lane splitting in Missouri, you may still receive a ticket for it if your actions are deemed dangerous. motorcycle accidents are caused by other drivers.
