I hate to rain on your parade but I sincerely think this is one of those situations where there is NO best answer.

Regardless of what you do there are going to be those people who ignorantly or maliciously cut you off or pass too close or worse yet run you over. All I can do is recommend you watch like a hawk, never assume ANYONE is NOT going to kill you and get across as quickly as you can. Is there an alternate route you can take that is safer? Perhaps even one that might take you out of the way a mile or so just to avoid this situation.

Personally I favor taking the lane, but I've almost been clipped, right hooked and passed way to close more than a few times. There are a few intersections, roadways and even whole roads I jut refuse to ride on because it is not worth the risk to me.

What ever you do, stay safe friend!
