Mike Lewis Attorneys Discusses Last Second Merging
Nothing is more frustrating than approaching a construction zone where everyone is courteous and waiting their turn, then suddenly a car comes out of no-where and cuts everyone in line off.
In most states, law enforcement officials encourage motorists to remain in their lane as they approach construction zones in an alternating “zipper” fashion. Many times drivers fail to use this pattern of merging and either slow down too quickly, or speed up, therefore increasing the chance of a serious accident and road rage.
North Carolina law requires merging motorists to yield the right-of-way to existing traffic, however there is currently no law preventing late mergers in construction zones. No matter how frustrating it may be, and how many accidents it may cause, these drivers have the right to merge prior to the construction zone.
At Mike Lewis Attorneys, we recommend practicing defensive driving techniques in order to avoid negligent drivers and accidents. These techniques may also help ease stressful situations and create more enjoyable roadways for everyone.
