Passing

  • At a speed differential of only 3 mph, Driver B is gaining on Driver A at a rate of 4.4 feet per second.
  • To complete the passing maneuver, Driver B would linger in the oncoming lane of traffic for over 30 seconds—far too long for a safe passing maneuver.
  • Drivers also have a responsibility to use common sense when deciding whether to pass. If a road is slick because of snow or rain, or if visibility is limited because of bright glare or darkness, a driver should not pass.
