Re: Bemused

I have this idea that the non-expert driver's gaze settles somewhere not very far in front of their vehicle, and this distance coincides with the stopping distance from roughly 40mph. In other words, at 40mph they'll be able to cope with anything that happens directly in front of them. This explains...
