Utilize both lanes as long as possible and "zipper merge" at the merge point.

The zipper merge is the key to making it work. And if people are hung up about 'fairness,' I'd argue that taking turns at the merge point is more fair for everyone. After all, the only reason there's a long line to skip in the first place is because people aren't late merging.

Good call on Traffic. I was actually thinking recently I should listen to the audiobook again. Probably while I was cursing at traffic. ;)

RCMAC -- I subscribe to the 99% Invisible podcast. Interesting stuff. Here's the episode you were talking about: Queue Theory and Design.

Yes. And then at the merge point the people in the open (line) lane get all indignant and get reverse aggressive about letting you merge because of that perceived fairness and "line cutting" happening.

Use both lanes to the merge point and take turns moving forward. It's simple and efficient.

Late merge isn't a dick move, getting out of the dominant lane to get around three cars and then get back in from the shoulder is a dick move.

It's going to take time to get to where you are going, so why not choose to enjoy it instead of playing "Nascar Race Car Driver" with everyone else on the road?

Wait. Enjoy it instead of playing "Race Car Driver"? That's how I enjoy it. Though I prefer to play "F1 Race Car Driver."

If they can't afford the entrance price and are in the park, don't they deserve to be booted?

Are they Black?
