the other person merging into your lane. it is the person's responsibility to merge safely with traffic. they need to be going faster then the people already there. you being on the road gives you the right way. i see this all the time. most people think that you should move over for them. no. wrong. they need to step on the gas OS step on the brakes.

By Yisoonshin - "I thought that the car on the right would be at fault, because since the left lane is merging, the right car should go faster or slower to allow room for the car in the left lane. It's not like you can stop right there. But usually the right lane merges into the left, or at least I thought they do. By Perau - nope, that's not how it works. the car on that lane has the rightaway to go at whatever speed they like. The car on the left has to wait and make sure it is clear for them to merge.
