Might explain a few things. http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/mo...ant-see-properly/story-fn7x8me2-1226216633385 One third of Aussie drivers can't see properly A THIRD of Australian drivers admit to vision problems behind the wheel. And more than half rate snacks (55 per cent) and good music (59 per cent) above good vision (39 per cent) on long road trips. An alarming one in 20 motorists has trouble seeing pedestrian crossings, a study has revealed. More than a quarter struggle to read road signs, while 10 per cent admit failing to see speed humps or cyclists. The survey, conducted by optometrist Specsavers and Drive to Survive, comes as more than half the nation's drivers prepare to embark on an average six-hour road trip this summer. A further one in 14 Australians will complete an even longer haul of 16 hours-plus. Specsavers managing director Peter Larsen said the survey showed Australian drivers were blas aac about good vision. "We've got a third of Aussies saying they know they're overdue for an eye test, and a quarter of drivers who are legally required to wear glasses to drive admitting they have driven without them," he said. "When I hear that 12 per cent of drivers are more concerned about planning stops to McDonald's and The Big Pineapple than having good vision to drive, as an optometrist, it makes my blood run cold. "Your eyes are the most important safety feature as a driver and if you can't see clearly, you are risking not reaching your destination alive."
