Trying to merge at the speed of traffic flow
Happened to me the other day. Car in front of me on the ramp tried to merge and had a Canadian standoff with the car in the right lane. Slowed all the way down to 25 in a 65 when all they had to do was get the **** in the left lane and let the guy have the right. No other cars around, plenty of time and space
