Right, but this thread is about getting that traffic that would otherwise be hanging out in front of you moving along, in the same way a HOV lane helps to spread the load on the roadway.
It's the same with the express lane grocery store, if I have a cart full of stuff and you have a little hand held basket and the express lane opens up, or even a 2nd check out opens up, it's much easier for the person with the basket to get out of line and move to spread the load on the system then the person with the cart full and the bottom line is that everyone gets where they are going faster, the highway is not like a single line where someone can "cut in line" and screw everyone else over, lane splitting allows that section of traffic to remove them selves as an obstruction for everyone.
