What cheeses me off: Merging

What cheeses me off: Merging

Some drivers seem unable to merge. Of course it is a brilliant idea to slow to a stop when merging on a highway.

Of course it’s a great idea to get one car ahead when two lanes become one.

No, neither of those things are good.

When Merging: speed up to the limit at when entering a freeway. When to lanes become one, use the zipper method: one car from each lane.

Contrary to popular belief, being a car length in front will not get you home any faster.

On the subject of changing lanes: only change a single lane at a time.

Do not sweep majestically across 3 lanes and expect to do it safely.

You can’t legislate common sense. If there are line markings, give way to the right. I

f there are none, give way to the car in front. That’s the law. Do not stop.

Here’s what Queensland has to say about giving way.
