I lane split around LA all the time. I heard it's not allowed in the city but I do it anyway, practically no risk since car traffic is stationary most of the time. Never been pulled over for that and cops actually make room for me if they see me coming in their mirrors (many people do). I am aware of two basic rules (guidelines is what I understand them to be actually, rather than clear rules). First, don't lane split when traffic is moving at some reasonable speed and second don't go too much faster than the cars are going. Many bikers ignore those two rules around LA, especially on the freeways, and that is dangerous.
