Exceeding the speed limit is only permissible to avoid a collision. If you would have to exceed the speed limit to pass a vehicle, then legally you shouldn't be passing the vehicle.
No. Even when passing, you're still bound by the speed limit of that road.
Yes you can
According to the law: No. In reality: If you have to momentarily exceed the limit to safely pass a slower moving vehicle, the police will rarely stop you.
To break the speed limit in order to overtake another vehicle that is travelling at the speed limit, is an offence as you are breaking the speed limit! If the vehicle in front is below the speed limit, you should be able to overtake without breaking the speed limit.
No. Speeding is speeding. If they are not going slow enough for you to pass them without exceeding the speed limit, then don't pass them.
The speed limit is exactly that - the speed limit. While a reasonable excess of speed might be overlooked when overtaking another vehicle, there is no guarantee. You can be pulled over and cited for speeding, still.
Minimum speed limit
In general the answer is, technically, no, you may not. However if you are passing a slower moving vehicle it would be considered 'lawful' to exceed the limit to pass the slower moving vehicle and then immediately return to the posted limit once it was passed.
No. You're still bound by the speed limit.
In practice, It is acceptable to increase the speed of your vehicle over the legal speed limit to pass or overtake another vehicle. Legally, it is not permitted. If the other vehicle is already at the speed limit, you should not be passing it. If it were a police car you were passing, at any speed above the speed limit, they could stop you.
You may exceed the posted speed limit FOR A FEW MOMENTS while actually in the act of passing, however you must immediately return to the speed limit after the pass is safely completed.
the safe and legal passing of another vehicle requires that drive
In most places in the US you are not allowed to exceed the speed limit by any amount at all when passing. It's called the speed LIMIT, not the speed SUGGESTION. If you can't pass without exceeding the speed limit, then don't pass.Some states used to allow this, at least under certain conditions, but several of them have since changed their laws to forbid it. If you want a definitive answer, contact your state government; the highway patrol should be able to tell you for sure.
According to me If the car ahead of you is going slower than the speed limit on a 2 lane road is it ok to exceed the speed limit in order to get around that vehicle. Regards www.usedtrucksfinder.com A Complete Trucking Solution or decide if the pass is necessary
No. Passing another vehicle does not give you leniency in regards to speed limits. If you exceed the speed limit while passing another vehicle, you can be ticketed, just the same as if you were speeding in normal travel.Supplemental: The above answer is technically correct. However, like many things in law enforcement, it will be a judgment call on the part of the officer who happens to observe it. For example: If you are on a road with a 60 MPH speed limit and wish to pass someone driving consistently at 55, it is unlikely that you will be cited for a certain reasonable burst of speed to safely accompllish the passing maneuver - PROVIDING - you return to the posted maximum immediately after passing. (reasonable,in this example, being 65 (+/-) MPH and NOT 90-95 MPH).
Nothing whatsoever.There seems to be a widespread belief that you're allowed to speed when passing, but this is not the case anywhere I have ever lived. It's called a speed LIMIT, not a speed SUGGESTION.
It is never legal to go above the posted limit. Even when passing a vehicle. That's called an absolute speed law. Only emergency vehicles responding to an emergency may exceed the limit and then only when "reasonable".
Do not exceed the speed limit is correct
they are not allowed
Vehicle in front of you
So long as you are not speeding as you are passing yes. However if the vehicle you are passing is traveling at the speed limit the cop that books you will contend that you had no reason for passing.
Exceeding the speed limit.
