You almost always had to end up driving a bit too close just to have some room, people just don't think of why that truck might be holding back a bit.
You should try driving a 12' wide tractor down the road; people will nearly kill themselves to try and pass you...they usually like to try it AS YOU ARE TURNING LEFT INTO A FARM! Big tractor on road + upcoming farm driveway...big shocker that's where it is going? I have had people pass me in the ditch, nearly hit oncoming cars, blow the horn, etc.
