If you are going to drive on the freeway, then you had better know how to MERGE. First of all: the whole point of getting on the freeway is so you can go FREEWAY SPEEDS. When merging, merge at FREEWAY SPEEDS. Don't merge at 35 or 25 or even 15 MPH. Also, don't merge at 65 andf then hit your BRAKES because you don't think you can merge! This only confuses and pisses off the person you are merging in front of. Do not slow down to 35 or 25 or even 15 MPH once you have merged onto the freeway. This is just ridiculous! Also, don't expect the person behind you to drive AROUND you just because you are waving them to do this. This is illegal as there should only be one car per lane. Not one car half in the lane half on the shoulder and another car passing it in the lane. Again, ILLEGAL! If you follow these rules, then you should be able to successfully merge onto the freeway withut causing any accidents or making any0ne extremely angry. Especially ME. If you can't follow simple rules of merging onto the freeway, then you shouldn't be driving on the freeway anyway! Next time, take the frontage road or another route.
