I see the phrase overtaking lane as more like an extra lane for climbing
hills, or a lane dedicated to passing, but such lanes are not "separate"
like the turnouts in my examples. These slow vehicle turnouts are a
short-length "extra" lane on the right side. It's not so much a "passing
lane" as it is a lane where one can be intentionally passed.

Thanks for the feedback.
