    With passing lanes like these there shouldn't be any oncoming traffic as there's as a double solid between the opposing traffic directions.
    I believe Marcel is talking about these situations, where you are allowed to pass in the passing lane of opposing traffic:

      Ahhh, that makes sense. I spend so much time driving in the mountains I'm not sure I ever see those.

        They are a bit risky in an extreme case where a car is following a truck going up the hill to closely. If the driver behind decides to use the passing lane and quickly changes into the center, he may not look to see a car being passed going down hill.
