Never mind the occasional idiot that needs to fill the safe gap you leave ahead of you. They will jump out again soon enough, often to get caught up in a brake jam in the nervous left lane.
When my commute was Voorburg-Amsterdam before the A4 got widened traffic jams were my daily annoyance. I adopted a game I called 'follow the fool'.
(EDIT not literally following, just keeping an eye on the whereabouts)
Somebody cuts you up, then you don't react but just try to keep him in sight and see what happens. So often they ran into trouble changing toward temporaryly faster lanes which always turn to be jammed the worst.
I lost more of them behind me than ahead of me, despite me not making any effort to hurry at all.
