Safely Passing Parked Vehicles
When there are vehicles parked on the road, motorists must abide by the traffic code.
Here is a reminder:
A driver on a two-way carriage way without a dividing line may move to the right of the road or into the other carriageway to avoid an obstruction such as a parked car if;
- the driver has a clear view of the approaching traffic; and
- if it is necessary to avoid the obstruction; and
- the driver can do so safely.
As a matter of courtesy and safety, a moving vehicle must stay behind a parked car on the left side of the road, and allow any traffic, travelling in the opposite direction to continue.
