Is it legal to lane split in Florida?

According to Florida Statute 316.209…

It is not currently legal to lane split while riding a motorcycle or moped in the state of Florida. Motorcycle lane splitting is when a motorcycle rider drives between two lanes of traffic that are moving in the same direction. Lane splitting is illegal in most states, including the state of Florida. There are some motorcycle riders who believe that lane splitting is safer than riding in traffic as it allows them to avoid being rear-ended by other vehicles. However, there is no current evidence to support this claim. In fact, lane splitting can be dangerous as it puts riders at risk of being hit by other vehicles or sideswiped by cars changing lanes. It can also be difficult for other drivers to see motorcycles that are lane splitting. For these reasons, it is important to be aware of the dangers of motorcycle lane splitting before deciding whether or not to do it.
