Because its statistically more dangerous. Going the same direction, youd pass at almost the same speed in alot of areas. So if you hit them it would be at 5 mph difference. Lets say hes going 20 and you 30. Thats a 10 mph collision. Flip it where hes coming at you, 20 mph and you 30mph. Thats 50mph impact. Ouch.
