Drivers who's attention span only stretches to one hazard at a time get a nasty bump when two occur at the same time. Answer: go slower and a few more brains stand a better chance of taking it all in. And then, some of these drivers may even have time to work out that the best way to avoid collisions is to take avoiding action themselves, rather than expecting everyone else to do the avoiding.

Agreed. I know it's off topic, but driving standards these days are cr*p! Every single time I go out in the car you see people speeding/running red lights. The worst thing is nobody seems to care!

Nobody's perfect, but its gotta be said that peoples attitudes to what is ok whilst driving has to he re-evaluated!
