Virginia Beach Reckless Driving Attorney: § 46.2-854. Passing on or at the crest of a grade or on a curve.

A person shall be guilty of reckless driving who, while driving a vehicle, overtakes and passes another vehicle proceeding in the same direction, on or approaching the crest of a grade or on or approaching a curve in the highway, where the driver’s view along the highway is obstructed, except where the overtaking vehicle is being operated on a highway having two or more designated lanes of roadway for each direction of travel or on a designated one-way roadway or highway.

THIS SECTION WAS INTENDED TO PREVENT A COLLISION BETWEEN TWO MEETING VEHICLES approaching each other on the crest of a hill and driving across or too close to the center line of the highway. Petcosky v. Bowman, 197 Va. 240, 89 S.E. 2d (1955).
