Cannot always pass someone using the right lane!!!!!

I occasionally come across strange rules in the Kansas City, Missouri municipal code. Here is one of them for not being able to pass on the right side of the road!!

Sec. 70-394. - Overtaking vehicle on right.
The driver of a vehicle may overtake and pass upon the right of another vehicle only under the following conditions:
When the vehicle overtaken is making or about to make a left turn.
Upon a roadway with unobstructed pavement of sufficient width for two or more lines of vehicles moving lawfully in the direction being traveled by the overtaking vehicle.
The driver of a vehicle may overtake and pass another vehicle upon the right only under conditions permitting such movement in safety. Such movement shall not be made by driving off the roadway.
