Question:

In Ohio, what should you do to pass another vehicle on a two-lane road?

A
Explaination

When passing another vehicle on a two-lane road in Ohio, you must signal, sound your horn to alert the other driver, and maintain a safe distance at all times. You must return to your own lane before coming within 200 feet of any oncoming vehicle. (Note: Even 200 feet is cutting it rather close. If your vehicle and an oncoming vehicle are each traveling at 40 mph, the two vehicles will close a 200-foot distance between them in just 1.7 seconds before a head-on collision may occur. Always make sure the passing lane is clear for a great distance before you try to pass.) [Passing to the Left, Passing, 6 – Traffic Laws, Digest of Ohio Motor Vehicle Laws]).
