CBS NEWS – Last minute merges on highways are often blamed for causing road rage.
Engineers in a handful of states are now encouraging drivers to use the so called zipper merge.
It’s when drivers wait until the final moments to join a single lane of traffic before construction zones.
The Kansas State Department of Transportation has put up signs asking drivers to use both lanes and take turns.
Studies show that it can create 50% shorter lines and a reduction in speeds around construction workers.
They say drivers also report less anxiety and frustration.
