I’m not convinced SMIDSY is from people not seeing us. I believe it comes down to us being a smaller object in the drivers’ eyes (even with lights on) and therefore going slower. Why do I say this? A little while ago I was in my car needing to pull out into traffic, looked right saw a truck coming, and thought to myself, no I’ll wait it’s going to fast for me to safely pull out, looked left, nothing there, looked right again, the truck was closer, but I realized I could have easily made it. I think the truck being big it appears as if it is going faster. In this case my judgement was off, (normally I consider it pretty darn good, can’t remember last time I had a close call). As cars are the most numerable vehicle on the road our speed judging abilities are best suited to cars. What I do now if I see somebody has the potential to turn into my path is to quickly flash them....make them think twice (no guaranties, always prepared for dangerous driving). Thoughts??
