I have passed idiots on the approach ramp going too slow so I do not get stuck when they get close, look and then stop. (yes I have seen that countless times) If they catch you your next move is also to be trying to get on the road from a dead stop also, not a good situation!

For driving a large truck.
Driving a large commercial truck most people know that when they see you coming up the approach with your turn signals flashing you are coming over, you are telling them that not asking for permission!

How not to merge...
