Do Not Pass. This sign marks the beginning of a no passing zone. Passing signs tell you where it is safe to pass another vehicle and where you cannot. Passing areas are based on how far you can see ahead. Where it is permitted to pass, you may do so only if it is safe.
Divided highways have a center strip that separates traffic going in opposite directions. The sign is posted before a divided highway begins.
Approach the turn with your left wheels as close as possible to the center line. Enter the left lane, to the right of the center line. When traffic permits, you may move out of the left lane.
