Zipper Rule and Arrogance

So to I had the pleasure of being treated like the vehicle trailing in the zipper rule when there was a clear give way marked on the road. The details of this rule can be found on page 23 of the Road Rules Booklet

I’ve never liked this rule, as I believe that it encourages reckless driving practice by allowing forceful give way by whoever is mostly in front of the other vehicle. The vehicle in question was towing a caravan and ignored the road markings to give way when merging. So guess who had to break to avoid the caravan from replacing the front of my car!
