Almost every time I have had a close call.. it was some idiot on their phone!

I always stop in the left side of the lane ( in the direct line of sight of the driver), in gear, and flash my brake light until the car behind me comes to a complete stop. I hate it when "jack-wagons" want to stop 12 inches from my rear tire.

I usually ride in one of the left lanes (if available) and stay in the right side of the lane, almost on the line. Try and make sure I've got a quick exit between cars if the guy behind doesn't stop in time. Unfortunately, this only works if you're not the first vehicle to the light.

Stop in the middle of lane and do burn outs, the oil will help save your tires. Cars will stop because they will think is on fire.
