Construction Lineup Jumpers on the 102

Posted on Sat, Sep 26, 2009 at 5:48 PM

A new interchange to Larry Uteck Blvd is being built on the 102 just past the Kearney Lake exit. There is blasting and lots of heavy equipment, so they close down the right lane outbound. There are plenty of cones and signs indicating that you must merge into the left lane. However, you are not forced to merge for some time. Here is here the nasty Halifax driver mentality kicks in.

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?
