Stay right the hell in your lane until the last moment, and then cars take turns entering the bottleneck one for one, like a zipper. It keeps traffic flowing, prevents backups and cuts down on road rage.

If you are wearing that one jacket where the zipper breaks and you can't quite get it to go back to the way it's supposed to be and it just always annoys you that the teeth on it don't quite line up because that one stupid tooth always tries to cut in front and keeps fucking everything up no matter what you do.

Edit: A couple people have asked if they can use the video. So I'm just going to post here that I have no problem with anyone using it so you can go ahead and use it for whatever you want.

Most Minnesota motorists start to merge in construction zones as soon as they see warning signs and learn which lane ahead is closed. This driving behavior, called "early merge" can lead to dangerous lane switching, inconsistent driving speeds that cause crashes, long back-ups that block interchanges, and road rage.

Research shows, however, that these dangers decrease and traffic moves more smoothly when motorists use both lanes until reaching the defined merge area and then alternate in "zipper" fashion into the open lane.

Last-minute merges on highways are often blamed for causing road rage. But engineers in a handful of states are now encouraging drivers to use the so-called zipper merge -- when drivers wait until the final moments to join a single lane of traffic before construction zones.

Perhaps nowhere is the spirit of cooperation among drivers better illustrated than the Zipper Merge. This controversial congestion-control maneuver calls for all drivers in slower-moving traffic ahead of a lane closure to remain in their respective lanes up until the merge point, then take turns moving through the continuing lane, one-by-one, in an orderly fashion — coming together like the teeth of a zipper.’s Matt Schmitz goes over the maneuver in this week’s segment of Driving Smart.

Sorry if you find the audio obnoxious. You won't miss much by muting it.

I had a line of about 15+ cars behind me, and this guy holds all of us up. At first I thought he tried to change lanes but changed his mind, or he was blocking me. To find out which/figure out how committed he was to blocking me and the cars behind me, I tried making it through the gap, which answered my question.

For those who don't understand the problem/think I was being a dick, the minivan at the beginning was doing the merge wrong, contrary to what some people may think. All the cars at the end of my lane, as well as the ones behind me were doing it correctly (or at least attempting to) by using all the available space. This is called a "Zipper Merge."

One state's department of transportation says the way you merge is wrong.

For the first time, the Kansas DOT is encouraging drivers to use as much of the lane as they can before merging. It's called the "zipper merge."

Most drivers, when they see a merge sign, slow down too quickly and change lanes, causing a traffic backup. Continuing in each lane as long as possible reduces the speed difference between the two lanes, which helps keep traffic moving. 

Kansas certainly isn't the first state to try to change drivers' habits. Minnesota, Missouri, Washington and Arizona all had their own zipper merge campaigns.

The "early merge" mentality is actually causing those traffic delays. The Missouri Department of Transportation says merging later reduces the length of traffic backups by 40 to 50 percent. 

For those of us who've been driving and merging this way for years, this feels like vindication. 

This video includes clips from the Minnesota Department of Transportation and Arizona Department of Transportation.

Alright, so here's the story.
I've been sitting in 1-2 hours of traffic, and I come up to this traffic circle. Once I exit off this traffic circle, the right lane ends and must merge into the left. People then proceed to zipper merge, or take turns merging. This is great, because both lanes get to keep moving evenly.
Suddenly, some wiseguy comes in from the right and tries to force the right of way. I have no clue why he couldn't take turns or yield like everyone else was. I ignore it and I keep driving, but he almost hits the car in front two times and tries so hard to cut me off. So I turn the wheel to the right a little bit and he falls back.
Once we're stopped, he rolls up along the right side, looks at me, and taps his head motioning for me to use my brain. I roll down the window and ask him what his problem is, and he tells me I don't look and complains that I almost crashed into him. Last I checked, he was the one driving erratically - but whatever. I asked if he never learned how to merge in his life, and he probably saw my dashcam - so he fell silent, mumbled an OK, and merged in behind me.
To his credit, it would seem that he calmed down or acknowledged what he was getting worked up about was foolish.
In summary, on one hand,...

The final construction stages for the New England Highway realignment are expected to commence from 12 May 2018 and take approximately four weeks to complete (weather and construction conditions permitting).

Please allow an additional 10-15 minutes for your travel time while we carry out these works. To plan your journey visit

At the end of these works traffic will be permanently switched on to the new section of the New England Highway which includes travelling over the dual arch bridges above the TSRC.

Please be patient and merge alternately.

EVERYBODY should practice alternate/zipper merging. If you aren't doing it, you're definitely contributing to the traffic jam. You'll cause accidents too for nudging other cars. I'm a victim of someone being selfish, because she doesn't want to zipper merge.

Moving on, I'm glad she paid up already for the PDR cost. Case closed.

Watch this video about kids watching adults in cardboard cars as they demonstrate work zone merging techniques, specifically a zipper merge technique. When two lanes merge into one in near a work zone, most motorists start to merge as soon as they see warning signs and learn which lane is closed. In heavy congestion, MoDOT urges drivers to use both lanes up until the merge point, merging in a zipper-like fashion. Research shows driver frustration decreases, traffic moves more smoothly and congestion reduces by up to 40 percent when the zipper merge technique is used.
