I
1. regularly overtake on the right-hand side
2. will drive closely behind them or raise my headlights a little (I can adjust them while driving)
3. same as 2
4. give a good honk after about 1 second of green
5. overtake them as soon as possible

Although the above may suggest differently I'm hardly ever a danger on the road. I don't cause to much trouble for other drivers. Sometimes I really can be a gentleman and I nearly always give way to others where I'm supposed to. I just drive a little faster than allowed most of the time.

The only car damage I had in the last 7.5 years was someone who rear-ended me when I stopped for a orange traffic light....
