“Nobody wants to merge no more. We just gettin’ squished into smaller lanes. While they make these promises to fix the freeways and don’t seem like they ever really get fixed. And at the end of the day, we just hate drivin’ with each other cuz ain’t enough space. And all I can think any more is if we just merged. . ." - Shanita
