The Zipper Merge

I just came across this video. For years I have been “that guy” who actually drives the full length of the remaining available right lane before merging into the left. I’ve never been able to articulate why this is actually the correct and polite thing to do, but this video does a great job.


  1. Oh wow! I was an early-merger…up until I read this post and watched the video 😊 (I’d been one of those who thought it was a jerk move to wait to get in until the last minute and had always thought that I had done things right by planning ahead lol). While that makes sense on paper, and also at high speeds, when it comes to smaller streets with lower speeds, I definitely stand corrected! Thank you so much for this informative post πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’“
