I have lived and worked all over the world and none merges worse than Halitonians!! In New Zealand there are signs everywhere encouraging people to merge "Like a Zip" and traffic merges super smooth even during rush hour. Merge like a zipper people one for one, do not stop and wait for someone to let you in, do not merge early, and do not let more than one car in at a time!!! —Is a smooth commute too much to ask?!
