Yes I wish they would do he same here. We got people and since we are close to the border from both Michigan and Ontario that decide this is my favorite lane and I am going to stay here. It's the law that slower traffic stays right. If everyone would follow the rules the traffic would flow a lot smoother.
As for braking. The last close call I had will towing was 2 moose. I was not going to hit them. So we hit the binders and locked up all eight wheels. A glance in the mirror to make sure no body was going to plow into my trailer. They later crossed the median and forced a fed ex truck with 2 trailers do the same.
I was impressed the truck and trailer slid straight on a wet road. The last time I had to do that 15 years ago with a different truck and trailer it started to jack knife and had to let off on the brakes and hit the manual trailer brake which jerked us straight and helped us avoid a collision.
