MANAGING THE MERGE for ADULTS

Managing the merge can be a tricky task, but following the tips below can help you teach your young driver to do so safely!

Adult Tips:

  • Remind your teen to plan for an exit as early as possible.

  • Turn signals are vital when it comes to merging. Make sure that you and your teen are both using turn signals when needed.

  • While in the deceleration lane, before you are committed to the exit ramp, apply the brake to feel its effect. If there is a problem, you can stay on the highway.

  • When on the ramp, drive at a slower speed to create more time to find a suitable gap to merge into.
