Not to be hyperbolic, but people who cut into the lines at border crossings are literally the worst people in the world and deserve to be banned from both driving and international travel forever.
I don’t know how it is at the other crossings, but as someone who regularly drives across the Huntingdon/Sumas border crossing, there are few things more infuriating than people who, on a hot day when the lines are long, skirt around the block or through the duty-free shop and expect drivers who’ve been waiting in line for the better part of an hour already to just let them in. What makes them entitled to skip the line? If they’re really so special, they can go get a Nexus pass and actually have a priority lane.
When there are multiple lanes open, it makes one travel significantly slower than the others, and it doesn’t help that on entry to the U.S., that’s also the lane that doesn’t split even when a third or fourth booth opens.
I had a chance this week to cut in line and skip ahead of at least 20 waiting cars. But I didn’t. Because I’m not a terrible person.
