How to Merge onto the Freeway

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Kianasroderules

Have you ever been driving on the freeway and you are driving along with the flow of traffic? You just so happen to be in the far right hand lane which is the merging lane for oncoming traffic. Out of no where, here comes a car going 30 mph on a flowing 65 mph freeway. ARE YOU SERIOUS?! So now, you have to either try and change lanes safely or slow down. Either way, it’s very irritating as a driver to have to make sudden changes because someone chooses to enter a highway of flowing traffic at 30 mph.

If you have been in this situation and you were the person driving on the freeway with the flow of traffic or you were the person merging at 30mph, you have to remember to drive for yourself as well as other drivers. At DefensiveDrivingTrafficSchool, you learn that you must always enter at or near the speed of traffic. Remember that the maximum speed allowed is 75 mph on most highways. Do not stop before merging with highway traffic unless absolutely necessary. Since highway traffic has the right of way, adjust your speed to compensate for the other drivers who are already on the highway. Any time you change lanes, enter a highway from an entrance lane or merge with traffic on another road, you need a gap of four seconds between oncoming vehicles. That gives both you and the car behind you a two-second following distance.

When taking a Defensive Driving Course, you are able to not only learn the “proper” way to drive, merge, and be a safe driver.”

Always remember, “safe driving is always the best driving!”
