There is actually one merge here where I do come to a complete stop.
It is completely blind with a new jersey barrier blocking the view.
(I'm going uphill, the road I'm merging onto is downhill.)
Gives me an opportunity to test out the 0-60 times!
(522 east to I405 north for the locals.)

Otherwise, yes, too many around here seem to think 40mph or less is a good
speed to merge into 60mph traffic.
