I was driving home from a trip and traffic on the Interstate started to slow down. I saw the sign that said "right lane closed ahead, merge left". I moved to the left lane and joined the other cars that were already there slowed down. After several minutes of slowly moving ahead, car after car sped past on the right to see how far up they could get and then barge into the line. Of course they slowed the whole thing up and made everyone have to slam on the breaks. One almost caused and accident. Suddenly the pickup in front of me moved into the left lane. He didn't speedup, he just stayed even with me. I made sure I left his space in front of me open. Car after car flew up behind him, honking and honking. He just stayed even with me. The line moved steadily without incident. When the right lane closed he slipped back in front of me. I gave him the best thumbs up and salute I could! You sir are a true hero! By the way, his license plate was from Texas and had a combat wounded veteran symbol!
