Freeway merge sign

Using the acceleration lane, look for an opening in traffic, signal and accelerate to or near the traffic speed, yield to traffic already on freeway. Do not stop before merging with traffic unless absolutely necessary. A stop can mean a slow and dangerous start into fast-moving traffic and can affect traffic behind you and cause collisions. Stay with the traffic flow. If you are traveling on the freeway, watch for merging traffic and adjust your speed if necessary.
