One day I was driving during midday rush hour and I sat 20 minutes and did 1/8 of a mile. In that time, 12-15 cars used the shoulder then merged immediately because there was a cop. The cop never looked behind him so after 7 cars getting by, he looks back and pulls a Porsche over. Now everyone is freaking the heck out and forcing merges. So me, the 335i infronin of me and the Prius infronin of him left 3 inches between our cars and drove up leaving no gaps at all. One lady decides she wants to use force to merge her Yukon and gets within a foot of the 335i but he doesn't budge so now it's my turn, I'm already pissed, and she gets 2 inches from my mirror and I went into a honking, cursing, flicking off rage. And the cop doesn't pull her over. All he has to do is line them all up and issue them all tickets.
