Passing

 

the maneuver in which a vehicle moves out of its lane of travel and overtakes one or more moving vehicles. According to statistics, violations of passing regulations cause approximately 5–6 percent of the traffic accidents in the USSR. Passing on a two-lane road with two-way traffic involves moving out into the lane for oncoming traffic and returning to the original lane. On one-way streets and roads passing is accomplished by moving onto a roadway designed specifically for traffic moving in only one direction and does not always involve a return to the original lane. As a general rule, one vehicle can pass another only on the left. If a vehicle is turning left, however, it can be overtaken only on the right. The Traffic Regulations include a list of the conditions under which passing is forbidden.

This gives rise to obvious problems when one attempts to apply Lacan's theory uncritically to the passing figure: While Lacan's theory lays bare the fact that the passing figure's "identity" is always a "mediatization" between his or her own notions of "self" and received notions projected upon him or her from without, it cannot really imagine this situation other than as a tragic impasse - as alienation - and this mainly because Lacan can imagine no way for the individual to counteract the overwhelming power of an already socially constructed sign.
