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!
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.
