This is my biggest pet peeve. I go out of my way to cut these drivers off, which drives my wife batty.

I was actually pretty impressed driving back from Dallas last week, when I20 went down to 1 lane in Mississippi and everyone merged politely hundreds of yards before the lane ended. Everyone that is, except for one a-hole that tried to slip by, only to have a country boy in a jacked up pickup cut him off (maybe 10 cars behind me). It was amazing; traffic didn't stop, or jut a bunch, just slowed down a little and everyone moved on. First time I've ever seen a merge go well in the US.
