I got pulled over the first time in my life on a motorcycle, it took had 27 years to get pulled over. The funny thing is that the officer said I did something unsafe but I disagreed and thought what I did was safety inspired. This is what I did, I had come to a stop light on a single lane median separate road with a right turn as an option.(right on red is legal in Pa but not for trucks on this turn) There were 2 cars in front of me and a pickup truck at the lead, total of 3 vehicles. I came to a stop behind the truck and the 2 cars then I saw there were no cars coming across the intersection while we were waiting for the traffic light to turn so I decided to ride pass the cars on the right that are stopped and then traffic light turned green and the truck who I didn't pass on the right yet decided to take the right instead of going straight and turned on his turn signal at the last second. No big deal he made the right and I followed. We both cross the bridge and I turn off the main road and come to another stop light. The light changes and I see red and blue lights behind me so I pull over immediately. The officer had a look of surprise when i took off my helmet. I don't think he expected a 44 year old on a red/white/blue CBR. He told me he observed me sliding past the cars on the right and I said yes I did that. He told me it was illegal. I said it was in the interest of safety because I was being proactive about being rear-ended. In any case he told me how dangerous it was and I said I would never do it again(which is true, I won't) However, I brought up how I was reducing risk for myself and lane splitting statics show it to be the safest practice. Then he reminded me that it wasn't legal here in PA. I didn't say it but cars regularly pull on my right if I am turning left or going straight.
Well, after he checked my license he told me I am not getting a ticket and let me go with the verbal warning.
He never told me what law I was breaking but I am wondering if I really was at all
