I agree with womble. When I am driving my car, I come across lots of situations where it is unsafe to overtake a slower vehicle. A slower vechicle might be a bus, truck, van, older car or cyclist. Impediments to overtaking might be trees, medians, traffic calming, oncoming traffic or visibility. In those situations I simply travel behind the slow vehicle until safe to overtake. It is my imperative to drive safely and obey the road laws at all times. It is not my imperative to be in front of a slower vehicle at any cost. As mentioned above, it's not rocket surgery. As a side note, I am most often required to travel at a speed that is less than the speed limit by buses and not by cyclists.
