Passing on the Right

How many times have you seen a vehicle passing another on the right and wondered if that was legal? Well, there are special circumstances when this is actually legal but many people don’t follow the guidelines. It can only be done when the road is clear and is wide enough for two or more lines of motor vehicles AND:

-The vehicle you are passing is making, or is about to make, a left turn.
-You are driving on a one-way street.
-You are driving on a road where traffic moves in one direction (such as a multiple lane

Needless to say, passing on the right is very limited and not allowed on all streets and in all situations. Before you pass another vehicle on the right; think of these guidelines to make sure it is ok to do so and safe. Patience is not only a virtue; it could save your life.
