The merge sign started a mile ago, just freakin merge. It's maddening when you wait til the last minute! Rant Over.

When there aren't lots of other cars waiting to merge, I agree, but in my scenario daily I hate when people merge too early because others keep passing those early mergers and it takes longer. Merge at the end of its busy.

Or when they never actually merge. They just drive until their lane runs out and expects there to be a spot for them.

You wanna know what drives me effing bonkers?  Drivers who stop to let someone turn left when they don't have the right of way.  Every morning, I drive down this one road to take my kid to school that gets backed up because it is only a 2 lane road and there is a private school on the corner.  Parents are trying to drop off their kids and then try to reenter the road to turn left.  And it never fails for some moron to stop and let these drivers make the rest of us miss the light because they're being all effing chivalrous and let them pull up and block our side of the street because they can't turn left because cars are driving in west lane and of course they're not going to stop to let these drivers turn. And now we can't go because there's a car stopped perpindicular to our lane!

I hate when people miss their turn and decide to slam on breaks and jerk over at the last second. Just go to the next and pull a u-ey! It's not that big of a deal!

Do you know what a zipper merge is? It's a lot better for traffic flow.

I hate that, too. Another pet peeve of mine is when people don't understand how a 4 way stop works. Like, they get there way before I do, and I stop and wait for them, and they just sit there. It really makes me mad. I have road rage.

Wow! I actually got honked at the other day when I had the right of way to go straight and they were turning left. I'm not sure how some people get their licenses.

Quoting PinkButterfly66:
