The reason the government gave for not introducing Zip-merging was that with the poor standard of driving they did not think drivers would properly be capable of understanding the advantages of this.
I think they must have had Nicolidus, Superbiatch, Hondo and The Yeti in mind, also a driver who blocks two lanes is commiting an offence.
Zip-Merging is slowley being introduced and where it is it works very well and nobody gets mad about it.
Yep - I agree. Why is it that we can all queue nicely in Sainsburys but when it comes to motorways we all merge 3 miles before the cones instead of just organising ourselves as we approach them?
