I would think after over 200 posts, everyone would know all there is to know, and can perform a proper merge when entering traffic.

Lets make the world a better place by doing a random act of kindness instead of saying I am bigger so I am better.

I know you're right Mr. or Mrs. or Ms. Community Administrator , but the posts about the the dishwasher sure did bring a lot of smiles to my face. I'm sure a bunch of others as well.

In traffic you don't have (take) a "right". You are given by others.
Don't take it for granted that what you (think) is your "right" is alwas given to you.
So, to avoind accidents, act like it and the road (world) will be a better place.

Apologies for getting off track with humor - one more and I'm done
the manual HAD to be referenced to settle the argument

back on topic - I say put everyone on a motorcycle for the 1st 90 days of driving... thye'll glady move over... and those that survive will be defensive drivers

Excellent idea- so long as they all fit, of course.

OK but one last thought on merging traffic. For the arrogant Beemer type driver who refuses to let you merge back into the right lane try this: Turn on your signal so they know your intentions. If they ignore you, move over a couple of feet to the right. If they continue to ignore you move another foot or so to the right. They'll scatter cockroaches when the lights are flipped on. Driving next to a mass such as a coach is as daunting and intimidating as it gets when that mass is headed your way. I consider myself a courteous driver and will always be a good samaritan on the road. I don't even get mad when someone does something stupid, but I have no patience for rudeness on the road. A little calculated and controlled intimidation always seems to work for me when some sob isn't willing to give up a little space on the off-ramp.

If you drive the interstates as much as I have; this is the action that you must take unless you want to play tag with the 50,000 LB 18 wheeler thats right beside you.
