it is a common misreading of continuous lines to believe they mean no passing/overtaking, but they don't. You may not cross the line, but if there is sufficient space you can still overtake/pass by other vehicles (i.e. in many situations the line does indeed prevent from overtaking (legally) because of lack of such space).

One osm tag for this is "divider" but it is neither promoted nor widespread: http://taginfo.osm.org/keys/divider#values
