I'm guilty
And I'm guilty of inching up not letting you in... >:(

Fact is in many many cases traffic would go faster if everyone used both lanes to turn right and merged only right before the turn.

I can't stand sheep who just follow what everyone else is doing and stay in line. I can't stand mid-west drivers. Israeli's and NY'ers are so much better :)

not necessarily, because then the turning lanes would get backed up and block the intersection.

Which is fine for those turning right. Not so much for those going straight.

You must be 2 cars ahead of me. The guy in front of me always leaves a wide open space.

I spent three years merging into the Holland tunnel.  You have a total of 30 lanes going into 2 (real number).  Not sure I agree with jj,  ultimately it's the same time.
And I know someone who takes off his yarmulka when he does as pictured above.  Probably a good call.  Not doing it is the better call.  In my opinion.

Agree. I used to always do it. Until someone pointed out what should've been really obvious(i guess not to new Yorkers) that everyone sense are not idiots and are following societal norms. Its essentially cutting a line in the store but since you can hide behind your car....
