They will pass you on the right or take chances to overtake which puts everyone at risk. I maintain a very relaxed but very aware state of being. It's serious business when your towing. I hate it when they jump in front and take away my safety margin. Once just north of Seattle that happened and when we came over a rise in the road all the cars were stopped. I locked up all wheels on the trailer and missed the guy by inches. If you give your steering wheel a quick jerk to the right you can induce a nice little sway in your trailer. At that point they will give you loads of room on either side of you. It can come in handy when your trying to merge into a lane when they won't let you in. Just let the little lady know prior to doing this. It's a last resort move that can save you from missing a exit.
Very dangerous, they may not be able to let you in. If there's something next to them where do you think they should go? It's up to you to "merge" not them to get out of your way.
