Does it make passing on the double yellow less safe in VA, and more safe in Pennsylvania and Vermont?

No. You make your own safety. You decide when a pass is prudent and safe and when it is not, passing zone or double yellow be damned. You decided what the appropriate speed is for a situation. I decide when it is safe and prudent to cross into the other lane and when it isn't. The law doesn't make it safe to do any of these things, and it doesn't make it unsafe to do them either. What's the situation?

As for the why to do it, so far I've only really given a shit about whether it's feasible to ever safely do it. But it's not like straitening out one or two curves on a 800 mile weekend is taking any of the fun away, unless you're in Florida and they're the only two curves you've got.

Double yellow lines are like speed limits: they are only for cars.

It IS LEGAL IN NY! If the light is malfunctioning, which it is if it will not change, it is legal to go through the light.
