 Is it just me, or............
RANT WARNING: What's with the people on the highway who go flying past (in the soon-to-be-closed-lane) as the rest of us merged when we see a lane closure sign? Is it just me?? It's just annoying. They create more of a delay and bottleneck. Is this not obvious? Somebody, please correct me if I'm wrong, or help me understand.

If everyone just merged at the end like any on ramp or other merger it would be better for everyone. The signs for the lane closure are just a warning that you are going to have to do something up ahead.

I will typically merge with everyone else but yeah, you don't really have to merge until the cones... it would really be better if everyone did that. In fact, on 293 in Manchester they post a sign that says not to merge until the cones. Same goes for on-ramps, I stay on the ramp until the dotted lines end and then I merge. In general I've tried to mellow out about the jerks on the road, nothing I can do about them, but I do feel your pain :?

Someone once told me this tidbit that made me laugh:

"Mass drivers drive like a$$holes and know it. New Hampshire drivers drive like a$$holes and are just oblivious to that fact."

:lol:

 Re: Is it just me, or............
Yeah, there's always those who feel like they've accomplished something if they've managed to gain 10 car lengths at a merge. :roll:

That bugs me too but this is far worse IMO. And it's all state plates that do it. :evil: :wink: It's the guy/gal (usually guy) that has to be in front. I use my cruise control, all the time. I'm going one speed. I come up on someone and cruise by. A minute or so later, the same person comes up on me and passes me. My speed has not changed. Next thing you know, same person, slows to the point where I have to pass. Again, my speed has not changed. Again and again and again it goes on. I've played this ridiculous game with countless idiots over the years. But one day, it was out of control. And this was a mass-hole. From Manchester to near exit 28 on 93 this moron did this about 20 times. So I had a plan. :twisted: At least in winter, early morning, there's a speed trap just before, or right at exit 28. Us skier need to get to the slopes quick don't ya know. 8) Anyway, approaching the area I knew there's almost always a trap, it was his turn to get in front of me again. So as he was passing, I kept edging up my speed. And you know when it's their turn to be in front nothing will stop them. I think when he went by, I was probably doing 85 or better, so him, probably over 90. I now could see the spot where the "statey" usually was and backed way off. Leaving him out there like a big matzah ball. And bammo, bagged! :lol: I started laughing my a$$ off and Becky asked me what was so funny. When I told her she said she couldn't believe I did that. I said, I can't believe it actually worked. :D

Try driving in houston traffic and then get back to me with these sob stories!!!!!!!!!

Mass drivers definitely are the worst though in the NE.
