(a) Except as provided in sec. 55 of this chapter, the driver of a vehicle overtaking another vehicle proceeding in the same direction shall pass to the left of the overtaken vehicle at a safe distance, and may not return to its right lane until safely clear of the overtaken vehicle. Upon audible signal, the driver of the overtaken vehicle shall give way to the right in favor of the overtaking vehicle. If the driver of the overtaking vehicle must perform the passing maneuver in a lane reserved for oncoming traffic, the driver of the overtaken vehicle may not increase the speed of his vehicle until the overtaking vehicle has passed and driven back to the right side of the roadway.

(b) No vehicle may be driven to the left side of the center of a roadway in overtaking and passing another vehicle proceeding in the same direction unless authorized by this chapter and unless the left side of the roadway is clearly visible and free of oncoming traffic for a sufficient distance ahead to permit the overtaking and passing to be completed without interfering with the flow of traffic approaching from the opposite direction or with a vehicle overtaken. The overtaking vehicle shall return to an authorized lane of travel as soon as practicable and, if the passing movement involves the use of a lane authorized for vehicles approaching from the opposite direction, before coming within 200 feet of an approaching vehicle.
