Another issue, especially in more urban environments is the the driver wants to turn left at a nearby signal and so doesn't want to use the merge lane at all, so they stop and wait for at least 2 lanes to clear so they can cut across.

I can claim guilt on this characteristic as there are times where I delay my right turn because my destination is left at the next signal. And yes, periodically, I get honked at to move forward into traffic.

Problem with this is 9/10 there's another entrance into that location where one may need to turn left. For example, at the intersection in that video.. All one has to do is wait for the green signal and just continue straight then turn right onto the distributor road which takes them to everywhere they'd ever want to go. It is inconsiderate to other drivers and it's also illegal to be stopped when you aren't supposed to be stopped.

Sometimes (but not always) there is a J turn past the light where the left turn is desired. But naturally you can't see it from where you are. On the flip side, to avoid the hold up, I have merged, and found the next turn around was 2 miles down the road.

That means in those spots you have to accept turning right at the light and then turning around there to make complete your desired direction.

Doesn't make the hold up at the merge right, just goes to show why some people do hold up traffic on those merges.

Oh, you mean the Jane Bryne interchange, as IDOT had it on an I-290 dynamic message sign yesterday.
