    Recently, an Appellate ruling in New Jersey says motorists may never cross double yellow lines, even to get around a car crawling well below the speed limit. What a pain!

    Should you still pass even if you might get a ticket?

    There is an older case, probably Cruz mentioned in the recent opinion, that I remember reaching the opposite conclusion. Maybe that one was on appeal from a verdict in the passing driver’s favor. When you put everything together I think the result is it’s up to the trial judge or jury to decide whether your excuse for passing is good enough.
