You've been there: You're stuck in traffic and your lane is ending. While you're obediently crawling at 2 miles per hour in order to merge over, there's that guy who flies past you on the empty road, then tries to sneak back in at the very last minute.
But on Wisconsin's new "zipper merge" on I-94, officials say it's actually better if people wait to merge. The fact that residents are "too nice" and merge early, WITI-TV reports, may actually be contributing to significant delays.
“I feel like that's what a lot of jerks do when they're driving," Kendra Gordon told WITI-TV, explaining why she merges early. "They wait until the last minute before they merge over."
Michael Pyritz of the state's Department of Transportation agreed that the drivers' kindness may be an issue with the new zipper merge.
“Wisconsin drivers, and people in general, are very polite," he said. "We get in line early. We make sure everybody sort of follows the rules."
