Vote of the week: Changing lanes on the Interstate
Written by Robert Niles
It's time again for my family's annual summer roadtrip. We're in the Pacific Northwest right now, a region of the country not known for major theme parks, so the trip reports won't start coming for another week or so, when we visit Six Flags Great America, outside Chicago.Tweet
But with so many of us visiting our favorite theme parks by car over the summer, I thought I'd lay a driving-related vote on you this week.
Here's the scenario: You're driving on the Interstate, and there is a car up ahead of you in the lane to your immediate right. That car's driver signals to come over into your lane.
What is your immediate, gut reaction? I'm talking the reflex reaction, discounting any context of what's happening in that other driver's lane, or elsewhere on the road.
What do you do? Do you speed up to get ahead of that driver before s/he can come over? Or do you instinctively let up on the gas, to give that driver more space to change lanes?
Be honest. Your vote is anonymous (though comments aren't). Please click the reaction you feel like making most of the time.
I suspect that this one might provoke some, uh, lively comments. So tell us in the comments what you think about this situation - one we've all seen countless times on the road. And have a great week!
