    I thought a zipper merge was something you do at a pickle park.

    Yeah it may contribute to the delay behind me cuz idiots dont know how to merge when they should. But in front of me, Its smooth sailing... traffic gets backed up because of people wanting to be first, causing the descent people that did the right thing and already merged, slam on their brakes cuz you cut them off at the last moment. And when they slam on their brakes to let you in, it causes a chain reaction brake event which makes the backup worse. Prove me wrong.

    The merge point is when you pass the “merge now” sign, not where you lose the lane. Its basic instruction, yet some people cant comprehend it.:scratch:
