Watch for peoples eyes being blocked by A-pillars as you approach them on cross streets and you will see what I mean.

My work truck is horrible for this, a car can hide in the blind spot from the A pillar.

I had a sport bike tailgating me on Rt 33 in WV the other day. We were in the Jeep so I know I wasn't setting any speed records.
Three passing zones, then passing lanes. I move into the right lane, so does he and stays right on my back bumper
