I tend to stay on the right where I can get a better sense of what's going on. Usually - and I find it kind of hard to believe - the car directly in back of me stays there, and doesn't try to pull parallel. On one particularly busy intersecion I just get off the bike and wait for the light - it's just too dangerous with all of the red light runners and such.
I once had a woman in an enormous SUV actually brush me with the front of her advancing "tank" when I was WALKING the bike across the street with the light. Must have been texting or checking her email while taking her foot off the brake. Good thing my peripheral vision picked up the movement - but that's another story.
If you get a fatbike, don't get one of those cheapo mailorder things...
