Wow, I never knew that this!  I also had no idea that the tall skinny construction cones/barrels could talk.

According the a video released by the Kanas DOT, when you come up to a closed lane, like a construction zone, you should wait to merge.

You know, usually we call those people jerks, because they cut to the front of the line.. which is kind of dumb, since it’s not like we’re all going to the same place and get ice cream if we get there first; but if we would wait to merge, traffic would flow better.

It’s called the “zipper meger” and the idea is, if we all did it then it would look like a zipper coming together.

The talking cones explain it a bit better, mostly because they have moving pictures… check it out.
