Yeah, because that's what on-ramps are for. Get your acceleration done before you have to merge in. I hate when people try to enter the freeway in front of me when they're going 50mph, then i have to coast and wait for their slow asses to get up to speed. That is obstructing traffic.

Whatever speed you're planning on driving, try to match the speed of the lane you're merging into- it's called a zipper effect when done right.
