If people are too stupid to know that they should stay in the lane till the end and zipper in and that preventing people from zippering in only slows you down, too bad.

I always let ONE car in front of me, like a zipper. If a second car tries to cut in after the ONE I allow in, I won't let it. If a car tries to cut around by changing lanes, I won't let it. If a car gets 5 feet or less off my bumper, expecting me to pull out of the fast lane, they are mistaken. I will slow down, and continue slowing down until they are so pissed they change lanes to come see me. At this point they see my badge and suddenly they don't want to screw around anymore. I know, I'm lucky in some ways. It's bad to road rage, but we all have our moments.

Why? This is about letting people merge, which by the way you don't have to do. There is no law that says you have to let anyone merge in front of you. It is courteous to allow someone in front of you, therefore ONE car is allowed to merge in front of me. If they hesitate then they go behind. That's the way I drive. No accidents in 31 years, I think I'm doing it right. Actually I know I am.

Why? Like I said, curious.

You mention the badge and you talk about road rage. Simply wondering if you are new on the job and it hasn't affected you or you've been on the job and you are jaded.

Not all road rage is left on the ramp.

Google says you are wrong: there are laws re:merging.

All the police dept I've worked with hold their drivers to a much higher driving standard than the average citizen. I would not say your behavior is you doing everything reasonable to prevent a potential loss.

Vehicular incidents are the biggest liability all jurisdictions face.

Actually there are no laws regarding merging. There are laws regarding right of way.
The person already in the lane has the right of way. Anyone merging into said lane does not. It is very simple. I think there is confusion from my first post, and I'm kinda sorry for that. I will explain better. While driving if some dillweed decides to try to cut me off, ride my bumper, drive in a crazy or dangerous manner and I have the opportunity to badge them, I will. This causes usually three things to happen;

1. The dillweed slows downs,

2. The dillweed stops diving like a jack@ss,

3. The dillweed disappears, changes lanes, exits.

This is beneficial for everyone else because;

1. The dillweed is no longer a threat to me or the other drivers on the road,

2. The dillweed benefits because he doesn't kill or injure anyone else.

Not once has the dillweed been in an accident after I have badged them, not once.

I understand some might not like the method I use, but it works. It achieves the goal of getting someone to stop driving that way, instantly. Sure I get mad when I see it happen, it's dangerous and someone could get hurt or killed. That's why I have a duty to try to stop it if given the opportunity. You may not believe it, but it "works for me".

This is absolutely correct. Zippering is proven to be best. The only reason it isn't even more effective is there are people with kindergarten mentalities that consider people merging at the merge sign to be "budging".

We're not going to settle anything here, we're all going to keep doing what we're doing. Just wanted to reply so you knew you weren't alone in your bewilderment that this is still a debate.

Has anyone else noticed that that look on her face is the same as so many others in that group? I know several woman lefties and they all have that look sometimes. I've seen it for decades, btw.

What is it about that? Is it confusion or stunned disbelief or what? I'm thinking it comes with the territory, but not sure.
