Regarding the recent traffic snarls on the F.J. Torras Causeway, there is one thing that Glynn County drivers need to learn and it’s called the “zipper merge.” Traffic experts now agree that the best way to handle a lane closure is to do a “late merge.”

If the closure is in the right lane, proceed as far as you can to the closure point. Then cars should take turns merging and moving ahead in the left lane. It might seem rude at first, but when you see it in action, you will see the benefits.

In contrast, I have seen some inconsiderate drivers straddle the centerline to prevent cars from pasing them and doing a “late merge.” Glynn County Police should pull these obstructers over and give them instruction on the “zipper merge.”

Fire gutted a vacant house shortly before 11 a.m. Friday, leaving fire crews working hard through noon to extinguish the flames and make sure they did not spread to nearby trees or the neighboring business.

This past week, I received a telephonic Robo Call from someone stating he represented the Glynn County Republican Party. There surely must be a parallel universe with a similar name since that call was nothing but false accusations and lies about ESPLOST 3.
