A very dangerous intersection---no one seems to know what to do there. I guess merge is a foreign word.
Yeah. It's kind of a creepy merging and turning left is ridiculous.
Actually dougl the collision appears to have occurred just east of the bridge, which could indicate someone trying to pass a slower-moving vehicle.
Actually dougl, I believe the traffic from Stockton Road heading west onto 108 is supposed to yield, not merge. The lane is not long enough to safely merge, which is why I believe it is so dangerous.....everyone thinks it's a merge lane.
I think it's time for DMV to stiffen the drivers test. I hate the thought of one of my family members or friends being taken out buy some idiot that is a poor driver. I see dozens every day.
I would think taxicabs would ALWAYS yield right of way in almost all cases (for passenger safey) even when it's obviously the other vehicle infringing on it.
I agree it is a weird intersection, but you are not supposed to stop there. Oncoming traffic is supposed to let you merge, not run you off the road so they can be one car ahead of you. Making a left should be avoided if possible.

Oncomming traffic is YOUR problem to deal with safely !
No wonder there are so many accidents with drivers not knowing how to drive.
