Do you have difficulty understanding the difference between stop signs and traffic lights? Its a stop sign at the end of an on-ramp.Originally posted by: slsmnaz
Did you even read what you just wrote?Originally posted by: Minjin
We have a stop sign at one particular on ramp that I always run. The highway it merges into is right before a split so there's alot of moving back and forth between the lanes. I'm positive its there purely for the lowest common denominator: the people who don't know how to merge. So if there's noone in front of me, I don't even pause. I treat it like a yield and merge quickly and safely. You have to realize that alot of traffic devices are in place for the people who shouldn't even be on the road in the first place.
Of course this is all purely hypothetical...
The lights are there to distribute traffic evenly. They also prevent that one jackass from ignoring the "Left lane ends" sign and running up the shoulder to get ahead. Had them in Phx and I wish we did here.
