I received a citation on the campus of a Florida university for improper passing (passing in a no passing zone). The road had one lane of traffic for each direction and was divided by a double-yellow line. I was directly behind a city bus that pulled to the curb (wide shoulder) leaving about 4 feet between the driver side of the bus and the double-yellow line. I passed to the left of the stationary bus without touching the lines. Essentially I shared the lane with the stopped bus.
My question is isn't passing/overtaking defined as moving past a vehicle proceeding (implying movement) in the same direction and since this was a stopped vehicle and I never moved to the left of the roadway (over the lines, or even on the line for that matter) I was not in violation of the statute.
I never made a lane change and the vehicle was stationary so can my actions even be defined as "passing" per the statute?
Thanks in advance
