Passing on the shoulder

This is why you don’t do it. Fun fact, though: in Georgia, it’s technically legal if you pass one car at a time. Passing on the right is permitted as long as there is sufficient pavement for two or more lanes of traffic. The shoulder IS pavement, and therefore WOULD count as sufficient for a lane. The only other restriction is that you can only pass someone who is obstructing traffic; in this case, traffic is at a near standstill, so nobody is obstructing anyone. And also it happened in Tennessee. But still, if you have a good lawyer and/or you enjoy fighting in court, you CAN get away with passing on the shoulder in Georgia.
