In reviewing this thread I realized some context of point of view is in order. My commute is minimum 3 lanes wide and usually 4-6 lanes wide in each direction with plenty of passing room to my left. 2 lane highways require different tactics, methods and skills. Still; safety is the responsibility of ALL and especially anyone overtaking.

Any aircraft pilots here?
They will agree with their rules. All slower and less maneuverable aircraft have the right of way. Think of a hot air balloon or a blimp -vs- a small powered aircraft or even a passenger jet for that matter. The balloon wins right of way rules (within it's defined airspace) because it only has altitude control and zero directional control. The higher speed, more maneuverable aircraft are required to be aware of, see, and avoid ALL other aircraft. All pilots are absolutely responsible for their own safety and avoidance of others.
