We've all been there. Cruising along on the Interstate when the dreaded "Right Lane Closed - 1500 feet" sign appears. Knowing that the inevitable merge is imminent, you keep your speed and try to find exactly what car or truck you will sneak in front of right before the merge point. 1000 feet.... 500 feet.... The merge point is here; you've picked your spot and sneak in right before the orange barrels begin to block the right lane.
