Ever heard the saying “merge like a zip”? In this lesson we’ll explain what that actually means and how you can do it.
Merge into a single lane from a double lane
Merge from a feeder lane into higher speed traffic
You know how a zip has little teeth that mesh together, one after the other? The idea of merging ‘like a zip’ is for the cars on the road to merge, one after another, into one lane. Just like a zip!
A 'feeder lane' is a lane that allows slower-moving cars to get up to speed and merge with traffic on a high-speed road. A common example is an on-ramp on a motorway.
