another thing I don’t understand, #280

Friday afternoon slow to stop and go traffic, I was getting on the freeway – the on ramp is long and straight and starts from an overpass, so you have a good view of the traffic your merging into. I try to time it so I get into an existing gap, with the flow of traffic rather than flooring it up to the end of the ramp and forcing my way in. There was a spot as I got about 75-80% of the way down the ramp, so I put my blinker on. As soon as I did that, the guy with the space in front of him sped up so there was no longer any room for me to merge over until he was out of the way.
