However, there are specific rules specifically for motorcycles that riders must adhere to. Helmets and proper protective gear such as jackets, gloves, and boots are mandatory for all motorcycle riders in British Columbia. Lane splitting is not legal in British Columbia, which means motorcycles must stay in their designated lanes and may not pass vehicles in the same lane. Additionally, motorcycles are not allowed to use high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes unless they have a passenger or qualify for a special permit. Motorcycle riders must obey traffic laws and be aware of their surroundings, as motorcycles can be more difficult for other drivers to see on the road. By following these rules, riders can ensure their safety and the safety of others on the road.
