Sometimes we over look the obvious because, I feel we are on auto pilot and not 'here' now or just not present...I have driven with knowing the traffic flow, avoided accidents the same way; I have friends who can sleep while they drive with one eye slightly open, others who read books while they drive; one even has driven blind folded while investigating ESP.
