I don't accelerate to merge because most drivers in Phoenix take attempts for you to merge in front of them as a challenge. I'll just slow down a little and slip in behind them.

I also regularly let people in front of me if they bother to use their indicator light.

Never seen as much road rage as in this city. And I used to live in SoCal. Just the other day, some guy was so mad that I merged just in front of him getting off of a bridge (the way I see it, if you merge and the guy behind you doesn't have to slow down to keep a safe distance, you merged properly) that he pulled up next to me at the light and threw a fit so much that his car was rocking. It was quite the spectacle. I've noticed lots of people tend to speed up just before you try to switch lanes or merge as if it being passed is a personal insult.

They certainly love speeding up whenever I try to pass them to get off the freeway. Especially down by ASU.

This, absolutely this.
