A single broken line on the outside of a U.S. driving lane indicates that passing is permitted.

It is essential to ensure there is adequate space and visibility before attempting to pass. Keep in mind that it is illegal and dangerous to cross a solid line or pass in areas with restricted visibility, such as curves or hills. Always exercise caution and follow traffic regulations to ensure your safety and the safety of other drivers.

This is a common road marking used to regulate and control traffic flow, ensuring safe and efficient passing maneuvers.
