What is the law regarding passing on the left of a moving vehicle on a multi-lane road in Maryland?
2 Answers from Attorneys
It is usually legal to pass on the left (or right under certain circumstances) of a moving vehicle in Maryland as long as you are not in a "not passing zone". A few tips: always signal when changing lanes and pay attention to blind spots.
Title 21 of the Maryland Transportation Article covers the rules of the road. Specifically, section 21-303 has the general rules about passing. Beware that what law applies to a situation depends on the facts of the particular case.
