In most places in the US you are not allowed to exceed the speed limit by any amount at all when passing. It's called the speed LIMIT, not the speed SUGGESTION. If you can't pass without exceeding the speed limit, then don't pass.

Some states used to allow this, at least under certain conditions, but several of them have since changed their laws to forbid it. If you want a definitive answer, contact your state government; the highway patrol should be able to tell you for sure.

Is speeding allowed while passing another vehicle using the oncoming traffic lane?

No, legally speeding is never allowed. The way the police and the law looks at it is if the car in front of you is traveling the speed limit you have no need to pass them. If they are going below the speed limit you can legally pass as long as you do not exceed the posted speed limit. I know what you are thinking. I am going to exceed the speed limit to pass as I want to get around them as quickly as possible but that is a violation of the law. Even though everyone does it.


How much may you go OVER the speed limit to pass another vehicle in California?

Speed LIMIT means exactly that. That is the fastest speed you are allowed to travel under perfect road conditions. No state allows you to exceed the speed limit to pass another vehicle.


Is it ever legal to exceed the speed limit?

In general the answer is, technically, no, you may not. However if you are passing a slower moving vehicle it would be considered 'lawful' to exceed the limit to pass the slower moving vehicle and then immediately return to the posted limit once it was passed.

Is there a maximum speed allowed when passing a vehicle on Texas highways?

TECHNICALLY, you may never exceed the speed limit. However - in real life - you will be allowed a certain leeway in order to pass a slower moving vehicle. You may not blow past them at 90 mph but any 'reasonable and prudent' speed increase to get around them will be tolerated - so long as you return to the speed limit after completing the pass.
