Drivers can scan to stay safe

The problem with Mike Padgett Highway is driver training. The secret is to scan traffic, not look for traffic.

Hunters know they need to scan. Pilots know they constantly need to scan, not only for enemies in combat but also incoming aircraft in civilian life. Snipers in the military are taught to scan. The reason is that the mind does not process images visually between the focus point and the eye. It is not unlike selective hearing in a crowd.

As marvelous as the body is, it can work against a person. Drivers need to scan.
