If you are on a two lane road in bumper to bumper traffic, no one is going anywhere. If you are on a four lane and can get over, then do so.
When I was young and stupid, I used to do other things which I won't mention here. But, it has to do with those things we can't talk about here, the thingie we carry in a holster or tankbag. Before anyone tells me, I said it was not smart.
