  •  I also avoid right lanes once on a highway. Here (0+ / 0-)

    in MA I don't think anyone entering a highway understands what "Yield" mean on entering a major highway.  They drive up the ramp and just enter usually going slower than the speed limit.  I was taught to even stop and wait for a wider opening to enter.

    Do not adjust your mind, there is a flaw in reality.

      In New Jersey, I believe it's still the law that freeway traffic has right-of-way over traffic entering the freeway.  That, coupled with frequently-horrendously-tight entrance ramps (some graded at 25 mph) means that people enterin certain stretches of freeway are going much slower than the rest of traffic.  I personally think that's a dangerous situation, but that's a subject for another diary.

      The road to Hell is paved with pragmatism.
