Merging Traffic

Today I would like to discuss merging traffic. I think that when two lanes merge together on a highway, people should be adults – take turns, watch the road, adjust speed accordingly so that everyone is able to make a smooooth transition without causing traffic to halt.   Yeah, right.  So here’s the situation: There’s an …
