So, I got pulled over by some friendly local VPD officers in an unmarked this evening, and the encounter raised a question with me.
I was cruising down Clark at 1st, and I moved over into the (clear) right lane at the light so I could get past the lineup of cars. Light turned green, I proceeded at my usual pace (faster than is strictly legal), cruised past six or seven cars while I was in the far right lane, and attracted the attention of an unmarked cruiser.
He pulled me over closer to Hastings and gave me a warning for a) speeding, and b) passing on the right (which I understand is something like $109).
I have no problem with the reason I was pulled over, though. I was indeed speeding and passing on the right, no question there.
However, it does make me wonder, what are the rules for passing traffic on city streets when you're in the right-most lane of a 3-lane street? Is it illegal to overtake someone on the right, even though you've got an entire lane to yourself?
Thanks in advance for the clarification!
