Ask an Officer

Question: A few weeks ago, a reader asked about passing cars on the right on a 4-lane or more road. The questioner said the car passing on the right was moving at a very high rate of speed. I have a different question. Multi-lane roads almost always have signs that read, “Keep right except to pass.” What if a car is in the left, or fast lane, driving well below the speed limit? Is it then appropriate to pass that car on the right? Answer: The answer is yes. Section 1 of KRS 189.340 generally prohibits passing on the right. However, Sections 3 and 4 provide exceptions to the general rule. The exceptions allow drivers to pass on the right when the vehicle overtaken is making or about to make a left turn, or on a road that has two lanes of traffic moving in the same direction. Section 4 further states that passing on the right may only be done “under conditions permitting such movements in safety.” Source: KRS 189.340, Overtaking Vehicles If you have a question you’d like to ask the Versailles Police Department, please email it to john@woodfordsun.com.
