That was the whole point. Driving is a very complicated task, moving at speeds much faster than the body can accomplish on its own. Thus, our brain puts some tasks on "auto-pilot" to focus attention on others. When driving we see what we expect to see. Part of why so many ppl run into stopped emergency vehicles on the shoulder is because when someone sees a vehicle with flashing lights facing the same way they are the brain assumes that the emergency vehicle is moving faster than the rest of traffic. Since ppl don't expect to see a stopped emergency vehicle they don't see it and they hit it. Experiments have found that if the police were to park their cars at an angle on the shoulder then almost no one would hit them because the brain would be forced out of "auto-pilot" and would have to process the situation. The same thing is true of accidents. Many accidents happen because someone did something we don't expect. Or because someone looked but didn't see any traffic so they pulled out. Because our brain knows that stop & yield signs are a specific size, shape & color it processes them on auto-pilot without actually seeing the sign.

 

The lady that hit my wifes C-Max gave a similar story. The Toyota that ran upon the median distracted her to the point on colliding with the C-Max. My wife when looking at the same situation slowed to a stop and only hit the vehicle in front of her after the lady behind her pushed the C-Max forward from the impact. Pre-Collision warning may have helped the ladies attention focus back to the stopped C-Max.

You were driving really fast for passing stopped cars. I never drive that fast by a line of stopped cars because you never know when someone may pull out.

That was my first thought, too, and that was before I got to your post. That's the kind of stuff you have to be on the lookout for. It looked like the PT driver might have been trying to get around a vehicle that had broken down.

I missed a good conversation topic this weekend. I pulled up beside a local PD cruiser sitting at a red light behind another car. When the light turn green we all accelerated up to the speed limit except the car in front of the PD cruiser who continued not only to pass the speed limit but roll down their window and throw trash on the highway while weaving into my lane in the process. The cruisers lights instantly went on and its too bad my dash cam wasn't working at the time.

For some drivers this should happen more often. That dash video would have been a hit on YouTube.

Oh there are times I wish I had a road side cam setup on my property to catch all those litter bugs throwing mcdonalds bags and beer cans/bottles on my lawn. Makes for a really interesting day when the mower deck picks up and shoots a bottle or can across the road. Usually the bottle is ejected in pieces in a spray pattern.

That probably would have been worth a call to 911. I'm sure we have all seen that before but for such a long distance crazy.

Or highly drunk. 

 

It's Friday, good day to get highly drunk. Have to remember to grab some coke on the way home to go with my RUM. :)   

 

 

Remember now kids, don't drink and drive

 

You might spill your drink. 

 

 

 

 

In all jest, please don't, the years spent driving an 18, I have seen my fair share of this, it isn't pretty.

All this convinced me (or rationalized) to buy a Dashcam.  I bought this one.

Not a cheap solution that's for sure but as always you get what you pay for.

Have fun with your new toy.
