When merging onto a freeway, it is usually best to:
Proceed slowly while waiting for an opening.
Accelerate to a speed that is faster than the speed of traffic.
Turn on your hazard lights until safely on the freeway.
Accelerate to the speed of freeway traffic.
When entering a freeway, use the on-ramp to accelerate to the speed of freeway traffic so you can blend in smoothly and safely. Entering traffic must yield to traffic already on the freeway.
