If they would have never backed traffic up then there would have been more room. I have the right to merge you cannot force me to remain on the Interstate when I get to my exit and find a small space to merge. I had plenty of room and really caused no danger.

I am living in North Idaho and actually having a somewhat of a bad day already when.... I am driving to school and go to get on the freeway and as soon as I was on the on-ramp, I could see the trafic was backed up. So I see the fast lane moving faster than the slow which was about 15 to 20 mph. I get my self into the fast lane logically thinking here.
Then about 1/16 of a mile ahead was a state trooper parked on the Left side of the feeway, their lights were flashing but they were doing nothing. This was the sole cause of the trafic build up and traffic being made compacted. They were on the wrong side of the road for having previously pulled anyone else over. When I went by, their lights quit flashing and they merged with the trafic one car behind me, so there was a car between them and I.
I proceeded like a good law abiding citizen and did break no laws like speeding or wreckless driving. Then when it came time for me to merge right into the trafic the state police had made thick, I saw an opening about three car lengths span. It was the only spot at the time, so I gave a good signal about 4 seconds then merged into the right hand lane. I then proceeded to brake slightly to put space between myself and the car in front of me. The car behind did the same, of course. Nothing new here, right, well I get off on the off ramp and I get pulled over.
I ask the officer what am I being pulled over for. He said, I'll tell you I have been following you for over two miles, ( but I was breaking no law not speeding, nothing) he said that I made an unsafe lane change because the car behind you had to use his brakes when you merged (well, duh, I had to use my brakes after I merged to adjust length). They actually told me they had followed me for over two miles, but I warant no following at all. I believe this is a nasty reaction to a political letter I wrote and emailed to the white house. The only thing they could have against me is my political activity, letting them hear the truth from my mouth. I am no criminal but I am one of the Ones willing to die for my Freedom and hate what the establishment of this government has become.
Kinda makes one laugh when I stop and think, I got set up for a petty trafic ticket. This could of been quota driven but I am thinking not because they told me they were following me. If they are watching this just makes me put more of my attension to politics now. The problem is, I am young early thirties and want to study science right now not politics. I will do what I must though and if the country is in mortal danger then I must deal with that first. It just pisses me off.
Anyone else get treated like this let me know. Last fact this was a tight merge but never was anyone in any danger. Lets hear what you have to say!!!
