My reasoning is: Traffic is already stopped. I'm going as far as I can before I try to enter the open lane. I'm not going to come to a stop and try to work my way into the stopped lane while 100+ other drivers continue on to the merge point and merge 1/2 mi or whatever ahead of me. I don't feel the need to be a traffic martyr. ;)


Don't inject logic into this.

Have you driven in Pittsburgh? 75% of the time the "open" lane is at a complete stop before you even see the "merge" sign. :lol:


There's an element of this that depends on the road I guess. I'm envisioning a stretch of i95 in buttwad county. In a congested area things are different.


Yeah, I'm thinking of the Pittsburgh parkway where people wear out a set of brakes every month. ;)


In My experience with him shmenguin treats every driving scenario as best case

Well they can't all be those crazy arched roadways that seem to plague your life.

The "hide your belt" slots on pants. I don't get the point. "Holy ****. He's a gd Houdini. His belt only shows up in the front, then disappears!" - said no one, ever. All it does is get in the way when I'm trying to put the damn thing on.

I agree with Troy. We get maybe 40 days of summer in pittsburgh. Is it so much to ask for some sun and heat?

I enjoy the sun and the heat. But people actually enjoy the humidity?

Yeah, I'm picturing the merge at 28 north coming out of the city. The traffic actually backs up all the way to the Fort Pitt bridge because there are no long stretches of road.

I do agree if there is a ton of highway and the traffic is backuped prior to the merge signs and is somewhat flowing and people blow by in the "open" lane to just bypass it, it gets annoying. But there are a ton of roads where that zipper method is 100% necessary.
