Back onto stories of the "regular" kind of Special Snowflake - SS roadrulesdonotapplytome-us.
Driving behind someone the other day, and we both got on the same highway exit. It's a cloverleaf exit, so you have to speed up pretty quickly once you're able to, in order to merge with traffic. It being winter (snowy and all), people were going slower than normal, so I wasn't terribly surprised when the person in front of me wasn't accelerating very fast to merge onto the highway. I was not, however, expecting them to slam on their brakes and STOP. I almost drove into the car before I could stop. I could see people coming up behind me who wouldn't be prepared to stop. I honked at them repeatedly, and they finally started accelerating very slowly. As soon as it was safe, I changed lanes and passed them quickly. I still have no idea why whoever was driving thought it was okay to stop in the middle of a highway merge, nor do I know why they stopped. As far as I could tell, there were no impediments to driving safely anywhere.
