295 S/Pennsylvania Ave. Merge
At the point where 295S runs out, before merging onto Penn. Ave in NE by the Sousa Bridge, signs give drivers at least 1/2 mile of warning that they need to merge to the two right lanes. It is always amusing to see the abundance of local drivers who drive in the left lane all the way to the end and attempt to squeeze in, crossing the solid white line and sometimes even busting through plastic pylons.
Yesterday a jackface in a silver Lexus SUV tried to squeeze in by pushing me out of the way. He was about an inch from my left fender when I honked the horn. We had a nice calm conversation (rrrright) in which he accused me of "cutting him off." Hmmm, didn't know you could cut someone off if they try to Sherman Tank their way into your lane!
Anyone else have similar experiences?
