    This merging problem is a nationwide epidemic.

    Plenty of situational awareness failure to go around here. That driver could have backed off, too. He should have been able to see that coming.

    Instead of big government pushing electric cars, perhaps Public Transportation could save the planet And... lives.
    I propose doing a test run in Cincinati.....
    The things i, and i'm sure all of us see people doing when driving is foolish. Thousands of people die while driving, but where are safe driving advocates ?

    How often have you seen a "student driver" who is taking "Driving Ed" in school, out on the Interstate, taught by maybe a person who is really doesn't know how to drive in today's traffic themselves??? Most "Driving Instructors" in a high school, most probably is a coach or a teacher in the "wood shop". What I am getting at, CONSIDER THE SOURCE!!! The kids are not being taught and this is really true when learning how to drive around trucks.
