Inattentional Blindness

Temperatures in the teens, freezing drizzle, snow. Another day off the bike. I grow weary of winter...

Since I've been reading Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (and What It Says About Us), by Tom Vanderbilt, I've been more apt to ignore my cell phone while driving. I'm trying to convince some of my loved ones to do the same. This might do the trick. A tip of the helmet to Tom Vanderbilt, author of the wonderful book Traffic, and the How We Drive blog.
