When you catch up with a slower swimmer you can feel his splashing.
In that case you can start doing a drill to slow down.
When someone yields you then it is his problem to overtake you.
What really annoys me in busy lanes are people who swim tragically, splash water around and not even stop for a moment to think about how they swim.
