Is It Legal To Pass A Car on the Right In Maryland?
Personal injury lawyers in Baltimore know the general rule that passing is allowed only on the left. More than a few car and motor vehicle accidents have been caused by one vehicle trying to pass another on the right. Of course, as with anything else, there exceptions to the general rule of passing only on the left. Now, some argue that exception is a techincal work for a loophole. Certainly, the absence of a hard and fast rule gives creative attorneys the opportunity to argue how thir case does, or does not, come within one of the exceptions.
- If the front car is turning left, and the highway is wide enough for two vehicles moving in the same direction, and not obstructed by parked cars, you can go around on the right [if you can do so safely, and without leaving the roadway.]
- On a one-way street, if it is wide enough for two vehicles moving in the same direction, one can pass on the right - if safe.
