Are 'Lane Splitting' and 'Filtering' the same thing?
These two terms are often used interchangeably to describe a two-wheeled vehicle moving between, or next to lanes of four wheeled vehicles that are proceeding in the same direction (also sometimes called lane sharing, whitelining or stripe-riding), regardless of whether the four wheeled traffic is in motion or stopped.

However, in order to avoid confusion when specifically referring to moving through/past either stopped or moving traffic, it has been suggested to informally adhere to the following definitions:

'Lane Splitting': Moving through or alongside traffic that is in motion.

'Filtering': Moving through or alongside traffic that is stopped.
