Another inattentive driver on my Bike Commute

Why all of a sudden am I having more close calls while riding to work? I have ridden this stretch all spring and summer and there were a few who passed kind of close but not to the extent to which I have seen on the last three rides?

Later in the video a silver Honda Element with Florida plates, passes a bit close, too.  I made another report to the CloseCallDatabase.

The car looks like a Hyundai Sonata, either grey or a dark gold, with Thule racks on top. Unfortunately, I can't get the plate from the video. I might have to try Ralph Pruitt's suggestion and mount a stick 3 feet out from my bike to show drivers how much clearance they are supposed to give me.
