I think the slightly smaller size of the Tacoma, as a pickup, fools people into thinking it's further away than it really is. From the front, the Tacoma looks like a larger full-size pickup. With that firmly in the other driver's mind, it's actual size gives the impression of a large pickup not being so close. As a result, others pull out or change lanes.
Of course, anyone paying the least bit of attention would not be so easily fooled. Sadly, far too many seemingly drive on auto-pilot (distracted physically or mentally, etc), paying little or no real attention to the gosh darn road.
What can you do about? Just be well aware it can happen and be prepared to respond quickly when it does.
