In my conversation with Dr. Monthly bill Van Tassel, AAA manager of driver training applications, for my belief piece on the zipper merge, the theme of “cooperative driving” cropped up once again and once more. The zipper merge is a predicament wherever cooperation amid motorists is key. Give motorists place to merge, make eye call if you can. Wave them in or give a blink from your headlights to allow them know it’s safe to shift about in front of you. Be polite. Hell, it’s possible even smile (a good deal to talk to in cease-and-go targeted visitors, I know).
