Car editor Niek Schenk answers: ‘Inserting is a special operation, so as an inserter you have to give way to through traffic. Although there is of course nothing against it if you help the other person by moving up a strip or slowing down as much as possible.
It is more complicated with a so-called weaving shed, where insertion and removal take place from two sides. But here too, drivers who change lanes must give way to those who do not. However, sometimes there are two cars that change lanes at the same time. In that case, the regulations let us down. The courtesy or brutality of the directors will then be the deciding factor.’
