A pet peeve of mine is when trying to turn right from a median strip/gap and have a second car also turn into the strip right behind you.
I've cobbled together some diagrams (sorry wasn't in mspaint but is equivalent)
Normal waiting to merge
Additional car pulls in before the car can merge and blocks view
Note: i forgot to put the traffic in on the lane but assume there is traffic coming so it's reasonable they're waiting,
Often it makes it so much harder to see and they'll end up having a clearer view and sometimes even pull out ahead of you (as sometimes you can't see enough to move and they must think why aren't you going, it's clear!)
Also they sometimes block cars wanting to turn in behind them.
Does anyone think this is acceptable?
I thought there should only be 1 car in the median strip at a time (not counting others turning from the other direction), otherwise it doesn't seem safe.

I added some colours to the cars.
Basically i don't like when someone in the red car decides to pull into the median strip (from where the blue car would typically wait) before the green car can merge into the lane.
I think it's unsafe for the red car to go there as it's difficult to do without blocking the driver in green's view.
