    Recently got my cdl class A with all endorsements, but I’m having a really hard time finding a job locally.

    I currently have one point on my mvr from an accident last year, someone side swipe me on my motorcycle while I was lane splitting (in CA) and they deemed at fault.

    Someone sideswiped you as you were lane splitting...
    Sounds more like you were being careless.

    Lane splitting is a dangerous business to be in.

    My first impulse, if I look back and see someone doing that, is to move over just a bit - in their direction.
     
    tscottme, Farming Trucker and Concorde Thank this.

    It might be legal, but it is never safe.
