^^Cool story^^

My daily commute involves merging LEFT onto a busy interstate, then crossing 4 lanes of fast-moving traffic (destination: HOV lane). To add to the drama, many cagers on said interstate are merging RIGHT for the next off-ramp which is less than 1/4 mile away. This maneuver is taking place in a short freeway section where vehicles are crossing paths with a significant speed differential -- those speeding up to get into the traffic flow (like me), versus those slowing down to take the busy (and usually backed up) off-ramp. Twice a day, 5 days a week, and the most treacherous portion of the commute.

I always appreciate the cagers who let me slide through their lanes as I work my way to HOV freedom. I give a wave when I can -- but it's usually both hands on the bars!
