It's the right thing to do, unfortunately, in my city, A LOT of drivers gets fuming mad and honk forever if you do this, even if they can't actually pass you (everyone is moving at the same speed).

If I take the extreme side of the lane even though it's not as safe as taking the lane, the drivers will not object.
