Not as many as you'd think.

It has already been proven lane splitting and filtering is safe. It's commonplace in Europe. It seems 49 states are the holdout!

It's already legal here (by proxy of not being illegal). Lane splitting is every day life in California. They're just wanting to outline some official rules/suggestions in regards to it.
