Public (or private) mass transportation vehicles should enjoy merging priority over all other vehicles. Privately operated vehicles should always yield to public transportation vehicles (buses, trains, etc.) when the option is presented. For example, when public transportation buses are merging into a lane, other vehicles should allow them the right of way and should not maneuver in any way that needlessly causes the mass transportation vehicle to maneuver to avoid the other vehicle. Of course, vehicles always should be required to allow for others to merge without causing the merging vehicle undo hardships, but perhaps higher fines could be levied against vehicles who clearly refuse to allow public transportation vehicles to merge.
