No vehicle shall be driven to the left side of the center or marked center line of 
the roadway in overtaking and passing another vehicle proceeding in the same direction 
unless the left side is clearly visible and is free of oncoming traffic for a 
sufficient distance ahead to permit the overtaking and passing to be completely made 
without interfering with the operation of any vehicle approaching from the opposite 
direction or any vehicle overtaken. In every event the overtaking vehicle must return 
to an authorized lane of travel as soon as practicable and, in the event the passing 
movement involves the use of a lane authorized for vehicles approaching from the opposite
