Highway Zombies

Hi Guys...

Am I the only one that experience zombies that don't look or fail to yield when coming up a ramp to enter the highway??

Then they continue to drive along side the RV until they run out of pavement??
Do they expect me to just stop on the highway for them or just swerve into the passing lane full of traffic?

Happened at least 5 time on the way back from Maine...

I have never seen anything so stupid in my life.

Rhody

Happens to me all the time . seems they don't know that the on ramp is for gaining speed to enter a freeway . they just cruise along at some slow pathetic rate . you know they see you and they neither speed up nor slow down . most people should not be allowed to drive they pay no further attention to the road then the car in front of them . Where as i know whats going on down the road as far as my sight allows

I've told my wife a hundred times, they should make merging onto an Intestate highway part of every driving test. If the applicant can't do it correctly, they fail the test.

Seems to happen all the time....everywhere. I don't mind slowing down or merging into the left lane....IF....IF.....it is clear to do so.
As probably most of you, I have had my share of dirty looks, cussing and the finger aimed my way.
I wonder sometimes..... they not see the YIELD sign or understand it's meaning?

On our way here to Michigan had a NJ driver (SHOCKER!!) ride the left lane, that was ending in 1000ft. The lane ended and his lane went away into our once middle lane... He flew down the shoulder, almost lost it into our trailer, then just missed the center abutment of the highway before speeding past us while his Jersey Shore wife gave us a dirty look... I did not even see them coming on our left he was moving so fast.

It happens all the time. When your driving a 30,000+ lbs rig with air brakes it is amazing how stupid these drivers coming on to an interstate can be. Try stopping or slowing down enough to allow these idiots to come on. I can't tell you how many times I have literally pushed some of them onto the shoulder.

Another pet peeve is when they cut in front of you and slow down. I love my air horn. I hope I scare the crap out of them. I would never want to be an 18 wheel driver. It is no wonder so many run right over some of these idiots.

That is also a reason I operate a dash camera all the time so I have a video record if one of the stupid drivers causes an accident.

Excellent point. Too many drivers want to drive 50 mph on the freeway. BUT, they think they MUST do it from a position in FRONT of you!

I think I'll start a thread called "Bumper Stickers I'd love to have on my bumper if only there was enough room"........... Sorta like "I promise I'll move to the right just as SOON as you stop passing me on the right"...........and a million more.

It works the other way, too. You're trying to get on, the left lane is clear, but the guy in the right lane won't go over to let you on.
