Wouldn't the simplest way to deal with this be for you to put your lights on?

The two cars doing the speed limit see you and are afraid to do anything for fear of getting a ticket.

I agree. No lights, no exceeding the speed limit. There are rare occasions that justify not using lights (and the MVA allows it) but if you don't, you cannot expect others to get out of the way.
Have you ever met anyone that would admit to being less than a better than average driver ??
