From the Highway Traffic Act
Passing to right of vehicle
150. (1) The driver of a motor vehicle may overtake and pass to the right of another vehicle only where the movement can be made in safety and,
(a) the vehicle overtaken is making or about to make a left turn or its driver has signalled his or her intention to make a left turn;
(b) is made on a highway with unobstructed pavement of sufficient width for two or more lines of vehicles in each direction; or
(c) is made on a highway designated for the use of one-way traffic only. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 150 (1).
This is all good stuff, but I assumed the OP was talking about city streets where he is passing the stopped cars on the right side where there is no lane. This is what I meant by passing on the right. You will get a ticket for that in my state if the cop feels like citing you. Trust me, I've been pulled over for doing this.
Same with passing on the the right of cars on a highway where you are essentially passing on the shoulder. I believe this to be a big no-no. (doesn't mean that I have never done this, but when I do I try not to cross the solid white line on the side of the road)
Splitting between cars to get to the front of the line at a stop light can also get you a ticket. Although I have heard of folks getting away with it if they prove to the cop that the city street is also part of a state highway and therefore subject to the CA traffic laws where lane splitting is legal.
Now that I re-read the original post I'm not exactly sure what he is doing, but if he is passing cars on the right where there is no other lane on a city street he needs to be careful that a car at the front of the line does not suddenly decide to turn right at the corner and therefor hitting him. Another thing to watch out for is another car in line suddenly pulling out and passing on the right to make a turn at the corner. These things could ruin your day.
