§ 21-302. Overtaking and passing of vehicles going in opposite directions
Drivers passing each other to right
(a) Drivers of vehicles that are going in opposite directions shall pass each other to the right.
Roadways not wide enough for more than one line of traffic
(b) If the roadway is not wide enough for more than one line of traffic in each direction, each driver shall give to the other as nearly as possible at least one half of the roadway.
This statute means that drivers going in opposite directions have an obligation to pass each other to the right. If the road is not wide enough to accommodate more than one line of traffic in each direction, each driver has an obligation to give the other driver “as nearly as possible” at least one half of the roadway.” The issue of whether half the roadway was given is often a jury questions in car wreck cases.
