It was probably one of those people that zoom up the Route 4 lane and then try to cut to the right into the Route 208 lane at the last second. Jerks.

That is a very bad spot. When you go to merge to either get on 208 or get off on Saddle River Road you have to be very cautious about the traffic coming up on your right.
