Was travelling on a long stretch of highway to Johor the other day.

I would love to share some information regarding my observation on the overtaking lane (right most).

Before I proceed to go into this topic further and deeper, please bear in mind safety is always number one.

Observation as below:
- If you stay close to a car, most car will think you are following them, and travelling together at same speed. (Avoid tailgating please, not safe)
- If you signal to the right, about 50% of driver might give way. (Provided those are considerate enough)
- If you flick your highbeam, well aware driver will give way. (A quick double flick is suffice)
- If you turn on your high beam after all the actions above, but the road hogger is still in front, it is proven the driver is self-centered. Avoid him/her at all cost, such driver will cause accident sooner or later.

It is interesting to see how driver behaves after such a long time did not cruise on such long stretch of highway.

Flash some high beam is the best and safest way. Do not tailgate, it's stupid!

After doing all of the actions that you have mentioned, I would usually overtake from the left when safe because the driver is already dead set on not moving away from the overtaking lane.

Why our new transport minister never want to call for better enforcement of the "Ikut kiri jika tidak memotong" law.... i.e fast lane is for overtaking, if you're not overtaking you not suppose to be in the fast lane.

So if there is a faster car behind you, move aside. You suppose to always stay on the left anyway and keep the right most lane only for overtaking vehicles.

If people follow this rule, then there will be less jam on highways.... But as usual most Malaysian drivers are assholes.

If the cars from behind is fast, but give proper signal be it right signal or flash high beam, I will give way, but if tailgating until very close, i ll ignore and continue with the allowed speed of high speed. One may say the one in front is self centered, but what about the one at the back that tailgating and posting dangers to others? So continue with high speed, the speedy drivet will be forced to slow down as well, then until i got clear view to go left, then only move left, else i will let them tailgate happily..

Honestly if you drive fast enough (faster than say 99% of the road users) then actually you almost never need to go to middle or left lane. In the rare case that 1% even faster drivers come behind you then only you move over or just try to go even faster still. ☺️

Yes, I have been overtaken even when I am already doing 140 in my Exora, above the national speed limit. I mean - If you overtake me while I'm already doing 140 , and you'll probably overtaking at 150 , two wrongs (including myself) doesn't make a right.
Yes, I also overtake cars from fast lane to middle lane, but only when necessary, just like what SkylineFreak pointed out. In fact its more dangerous to overtake from right to middle.

And no , I seldom high beam at others. But at times, when you are doing high speed run and suddenly some idiot from middle lane, forget to bring his pair of eyes and his rear and side view mirror to his car, and decided to suddenly switch to the fast lane, WITHOUT turn signal.

Worst part is, sometimes is some with old / underpowered cars (I don't mean to insult but it happened several times to me) suddenly switching lanes and taking their time to overtake a bus / lorry, while at back of you, there is another impatience tailgater.
If you don't have enough speed, don't try to overtake and wait for the fast lane to clear.
Dont wait for last minute the car from the right lane is coming close and here you are changing lanes, blindly.

Here is one video - Cars on AutoBahn. This guy was doing 220 and suddenly this BMW decided to switch lane. Skip to minute 2:28 if you don't wanna watch the full video. Kudos to the driver for keeping his middle finger secured.
This is the type of drivers I meant.

There are no fast lanes in Malaysia. There are overtaking lanes.

Again 2 wrongdoing doesn't make any right. Better get that burnt into your head.

Tailgater may be at risk of causing an accident by colliding with the car in front yes but your response of clearly showing your ego in handling the situation will get risk of an accident caused by both tailgater and your own car very much higher. Think about it, move left whenever possible and just leave the tailgater to pass to meet their whatever that's waiting for them ain't so hard. Key word is you and your car is safe LOL.
