(Olympia, WA)  --  A bill that would allow motorcycles to go in between cars on the highway at a maximum of 25 miles per hour may not muster enough votes to pass in the Washington State House.  Motorcycle advocates are pushing for the measure, but the Washington State Patrol doesn't support it.  State Patrol Captain Monica Alexander says the practice would amount to unsafe lane changes that would open the door to more crashes.  Traffic Safety Commission staff have also testified against the bill.
