No Need To Look

I was out in traffic today running errands during lunch break -- to the bank, to the dry cleaners, to the coffee shop. And in about an hour, I noticed the same thing several times -- NOBODY LOOKS. Drivers in cars, when they turn, when they go to change lanes, when they come to an intersection -- NOBODY LOOKS! And you can watch them and actually see them NOT LOOK. They just drive on, like they're the only car on the road. I am simply amazed by that.

I dodged two or three potential accidents in a single hour today - even laying hard on the horn once -- by watching and noticing that people did not bother to look my way. I can't believe more people aren't killed on the roads out there every day. Truly amazing.
