So was merging onto a side road that merges onto a highway. This section has two separate road merges before it merges onto the highway. I was on the first merge and this one has a short lane before I have to merge to the left. I push on the accelerator to get up to speed. I see a car speeding in the main lane (much faster than he should be going in that lane) but with my lane ending I had to merge causing the person to brake. By no means did he slam on the brakes or would I have caused an accident. Now did I cut him off that is up for debate. Any reasonable person would have foreseen the situation and realized that the car needed to get over and would have slowed down (or at least that is what I would have done). Well now this guy is behind me. As we are passing the second merge and onto the highway this guys pulls up to my left side. The passenger rolls down his window threatening to beat me up and telling me to pull over. While the passenger is yelling at me the driver is pulling closer to my car threatening to hit me. Well this situation just became very dangerous and needed to make split decision while in traffic. Luckily for me the second merge lane was still to my right and empty and would go for another quarter mile. I slammed on the accelerator as I moved to the right passed up a few cars and merged back to the left. I left those guys way back in traffic that they could not get back to me. I know for sure if I was in a gas car I would not have been able to do that. I would not have been able accelerate fast enough. Most likely the road rager would have kept up with me and who knows what would have happened then. Hopefully this would be first and only time I would need the instant torque to get away from a situation like this but I can't tell you how happy I was to be in my Tesla at that moment.
