Well I guess I should have yielded and not even commented on this thread.

I assume a yield sign is put there to only offer a suggestion or to keep the sign industry in business which sort of takes it back to the original post where people aren't paying any attention to the signs LOL.
I yield the conversation

OP didn't say anything about yield signs. Besides, not all ramps have them.

I'll take a rear ending before being pushed into the side of an 18 wheeler on one side and an idiot on the other. If you watch entrance ramps, you have plenty of time to slow down without jamming on the brakes.

There's a pretty big difference between letting off the accelerator a little and dropping a few MPH's to let somebody slide in and "jamming on your brakes".

All we are suggesting is the former.

One thing people seem to forget is that you are responsible for knowing and abiding by the traffic laws of the state you happen to be driving in. Most states have laws stating that merging traffic must yield. they also have laws that you are supposed to be doing the minimum speed before entering the traffic lane.

BTW, they do NOT have to post yield, stay right execpt to pass, trucks use right/right two lanes, etc in order for them to be enforced, and YES a Motor home, a SUV w/ trailer, a Pickup w/ 5er are all considered TRUCKS when it comes to traffic laws

But the truth is, this nation has be become a ME FIRST and ONLY society. Want to know who is to blame...the older generations for letting their kids turn out that way.

Now I stand my ground in that lane, and hold my speed. Screw em. They have the yield sign not I.
They deleted my last response to your post as I was just quoting the way you described yourself. As being one of those'P...s".
A little common courtesy to your fellow man would help out society more.

That is called Yielding hence the sign. What if the traffic is bumper to bumper doing 65mph? How do you merge into that? You don't, you stop and wait until it ends.

Now days they have ramps that turn into "merge" lanes. Typically they are much longer and are where the highway has 3 or more lanes. Here in PA a lot of them have both Yield and Merge signs. That means merge if possible but if for some reason you can't merge, yield to the traffic on the highway without affecting it.

In any case the person at speed on the highway has the right of way and legally does not need to do anything but maintain his speed in his current lane. The last thing any of it is designed to do is slow down or alter the flow of the traffic already on the highway such as making people change lanes, that's how pileups happen.
MrHavercamp - I can't defend you this time. Go back and read post #24.

Not with a iPhone, can't hack my phone. What cops want to do is use brute force to get in your phone but it won't work with my phone

I try to let people in on the interstate when I can but sometimes I can't, someone on my left. A lot of drivers don't know how to merge into traffic. When I'm merging into traffic I get up to the speed limit before I merge into traffic, I try to share the road.
