Not long ago I read an article about people’s biggest driving pet peeves. One of the big ones was people who don’t know how to merge when getting on the freeway. As we all learned in driving school, it is the merging car’s responsibility to enter the flow of traffic without killing anyone or causing an accident.
This is impossible to do when people ride in the right lane for no apparent reason, and also seem to think it’s some sort of game at which they lose if they allow you to merge. So, the merging car either has to slow down to make it work (which is bad news for future accelerations if you are in an older car such as mine), or push the RPMs to 4 or 5 just to make it in there alive. Which could all be avoided if people got the hell out of the right line. Unless you’re exiting the freeway soon, there’s really no need to be there.
