There was a story from the small town where I went to high school some years ago.  Parents left town, but first told their teen daughter, you can drive the truck in town, but do *not*, repeat, do *not* take it on the interstate.  So they leave, and not more than 15 minutes later, she picks up two of her friends, and they head for the interstate, because that's the fastest way to get to the nearest city of any size.  First time she'd ever merged onto an interstate.  Right into/under a semi.  Squished all three of them into tomato paste.  Three closed-casket funerals.

Clear cut example of one some asshole who thinks people are obligated to move out of their way and let them merge.

hippyneil: thesharkman: How did that car not shatter into pieces or spinoff. That's impressive.

Because this is not a Michael Bay movie.


Closing velocity has something to do with it... (not pretty)

ChopperCharles: Just because the merge lane ends, doesn't mean you get to blindly merge. You still have to do so safely. I see this kind of crap so many times -- usually people slam on brakes or swerve to avoid the merging moron, but trucks don't really have either of those options.

Yeah, it's the merging vehicle's responsibility to merge safely. Legally, the vehicles already on the highway do not need to do anything to "help" the merging vehicle.

Most of the time, it is some idiot who thinks it is OK to merge on the freeway at 40mph or less. These are the same idiots who spend all day in the cell phone lane, sorry, passing lane (some people think it is the cell phone lane), driving 68mph in a 70mph zone, parallel with some other person, getting upset with all the "morons" behind them, weaving around, flashing their lights and flipping them off.

It doesn't matter how fast I'm going... if I'm passing a group of cars, and somebody is coming up behind me, I get out of their way and let them go (if I can't safely move over, I speed up to do so). I don't get pissed that somebody is slower or faster than me, as long as they are courteous enough to follow the general rules of the road.

Another strange and annoying habit some people have is... when you pass them, because they are going 10mph slower than you, and return to the driving lane... only to have that person speed up and tail you. WTF is up with that? I also am amazed at how many people around here will drive 45mp in a 55mph zone, and continue at 45mph even though it changed to 25mph... Really? You couldn't be bothered to drive the speed limit when we might have not gotten stuck at the last three traffic lights, but now you are ready to mow down kids in a school zone at almost twice the speed limit?
