You cannot assume that, many 3 lane roads have a 'chicken' lane. Where
the centre lane is used for overtaking by traffic in either direction.

The presence of a solid and broken line together indicating that you
should give priority to traffic overtaking but travelling in the
opposite direction. But allows you to overtake otherwise.
