An interesting video was posted on The Record's website from Jeff Outhit discussing the problem of merging on highways. Do you merge early or late? I must admit that I am the type to merge early, then hug the bumper of the person in front of me within 100m of merging point. I must admit though, this makes for some rather white knuckled driving, especially when you drive a standard.
I can see the point Jeff is trying to make about wasted asphalt, but then again ... I believe a slower, but steadier traffic flow is best for merging. What opinion do my fellow WW'ers share on this?
