Reasonable drivers see the signs and cones, and attempt to merge left at a point before they are forced to do so. However, for many, usually SUV drivers or young guys in riceburners, this is too good an opportunity to be a shithead to pass up. So they slide right, past the merging traffic, and boot it all the way down to where the lane closes off, then force their way in at that point. Of course, other drivers are idiotic enough to let them in. The result: the line in the left lane slows to a standstill. Why can't some drivers around here just play nice?
