- You are sure you have time to complete this maneuver safely
- The lines on the road indicate that it’s okay to pass in this area
- You are not approaching a hill or a curve in the road
Your ability to judge sufficient clearance to pass safely improves with driving experience. Your life is not worth the risk of passing others on the road. Learn to drive as if your life depends on it ... it does!
