The continuous centre line is often described as meaning “no overtaking”, but in reality, there is no mention of the prohibition of overtaking in the legislation. Continuous lines are used when it “is not permitted to drive over onto the oncoming lane” (Road Sign Ordinance).
If you can execute the overtaking safely, you are permitted to overtake, as long as you do not cross the centre line.
If, instead of a cyclist, it had been a slow-moving car ahead, would I have been able to overtake?
– Yes, in theory, but in practice it would be impossible, because you would not be able to do so without crossing the centre line. This is why continuous centre lines are often described as meaning “no overtaking”, even though this is not true in a formal sense.
There is also a driving licence book online (2023).
