Could someone confirm if "do not pass or assist another vehicle to pass you by using this lane" means:
- Do not pass another vehicle by using this lane, and
- Do not assist another vehicle to pass you by using this lane

Yes, that's exactly what it means.
Using it to pass means passing on the right at high speed in a narrow lane full of debris, which is crazy.
But they're also saying don't use any arbitrary point on the emergency lane as a turnout. A turnout is a designated "wide spot" made to allow a slower vehicle to be polite and exit the roadway for a moment to allow stacked up traffic behind them to pass.
If you want to help people pass, watch for reasonable opportunities to do so, and slow down a bit to help them position for the pass. Then once they commit, slow down more to help them get back in.
