Simply so, is it legal to pass farm equipment in a no passing zone?

“There is some confusion, because while it is legal to pass other vehicles in a no passing zone if they are going less than half of the posted speed limit, it is not legal to pass farm equipment in a no passing zone.” Operators must yield the right-of-way to an oncoming vehicle and yield half the roadway.

Beside above, when passing another vehicle it is illegal to? Passing is illegal and unsafe when your line-of-sight is restricted or limited by a curve, hill, or weather conditions, cross-traffic is present, when there is a solid yellow line on your side of the roadway, or a school bus is loading or unloading children. You must constantly be aware of passing vehicles.

Likewise, what is the no passing zone?

No Passing Zone. Most commonly, the "no passing zone" traffic sign is installed before hills or curves where you cannot see far enough ahead to pass safely. The sign is usually reinforced by pavement markings, you will see a solid yellow line on your side of the road throughout the whole area controlled by the sign.

Is it legal to pass in a residential area?

So, yes, you can. According to Cool, if it's safe to do so, drivers can signal and pass other cars driving on residential streets. And if you are in the other lane passing someone and hit them, or hit a parked car while passing someone, or get hit head-on by a car traveling in the opposite direction, you're at fault.
