Two lanes merging into one. Arrows clearly define which lane merges
into which. At the merge point who has the right of way ?
I only ask because in certain parts of the country if a lane is
closing and prior warning is being given all the sheep immediately
abandon the about to be closed lane. Same sheep take great umbrage
if one tries to merge at the head of the queue as recommended.
(i..e) Zip merge as opposed to a comb merge)
To me the obvious choice should be a one to one merge at the merge
point but lots of pillocks take offence.

I am one of these pillocks. I don't expect you to push past a queue
at the supermarket so why should you do so on the road?

Its not a supermarkey queue. Its multi lane road. Signs advising the
use of both lanes are often used but still the pillocks queue.
I've noticed in other countries its accepted practice to use both lanes
to the the merge point and 95% of the drives accept this

And if every one did that there would be no problem It's the pathetic
******s who meekly queue in the inside lane who then moan at those with
the initiative to actually use all the road up to the merge point.
