Can somebody please tell me whether this person was legally allowed to do this?
So I was going at the speed limit (which I understand annoys more experienced drivers). This was a single carriageway. Just to confirm (as I am unsure if this is the correct word), there were cars going in one direction and cars going in the opposite direction. Not all cars in the same direction.
The line separating the oppositely moving lanes was a "hazard warning line" so the lines were larger than the distance between the lines. Somebody overtook me whilst I was driving (bearing in mind that they went in the lane which has cars moving in the opposite direction to do so).
Were they allowed to do this?

On paper, breaking the speed limit albeit whilst overtaking is technically illegal, but in the real world could be seen as safer.In terms of the actual road, providing the road ahead was clear the overtaking was legal as the lines were broken (if you ignore the speed).
