I must be old or something but when my lane is closing and the sign says to Merge, I watch out for traffic and move into the open lane. I know a lot of people race ahead and try to merge at the last second - don't like it, but I understand it and occasionally do it. But I've noticed that people DO NOT MERGE any more, they just stay in the closing lane driving the same speed, make no effort to move over, and pay no attention to cars in the next lane. They follow their side of the road, getting closer and closer to the cars in the next lane - if I don't make room for them they will just hit me. If I am parallel to them and don't slow down and let them pull in front of me, then they let me know I'm the asshole. I guess people just can't be bothered to be aware of their surroundings or deviate from what THEY are doing. As is proven to me on a daily basis "My fellow driver is a moron"
