superhighways that have collector lanes and express lanes use transfer lanes to move from collectors to express and vice versa. These lanes are designed to be used to transfer only, then move into the traffic lanes of the collectors or express as appropriate. Some drivers attempt to improve their travel time by staying in the transfer lanes, thus moving from collectors to express, then back to collectors, then to express, and so on.
This driver thinks he's getting places faster by transfer surfing
