Freeway observations

I carpool with my husband, so I’m writing this as we sit in rush hour traffic.

Why is it that very few drivers, when merging on an on-ramp from two lanes to one, do their best to try to get around the one by one merge method?  It’s like having to twist their arms to get the point across - no, you may NOT get in front of me, I already let the ONE car in that I was supposed to!

And then the jerks that try to stay in a lane that is ending for construction until the last possible moment - when there is no more lane. Or worse, the ones that jump out of the lane that isn’t ending, to get into the lane that is, and they know it’s ending.

Drivers like tha need to be smacked upside the head.
