As luck would have it, I was a spectator, not a participant in yet another incident yesterday. In heavy traffic, a woman was driving her car inches from the back bumper of a delivery truck. The truck changed lanes. So did she. The relationship between the vehicles remained the same. Finally, I pulled along side in an adjacent lane instead of being a half a dozen car lengths back and the woman was on her phone, talking in an animated fashion and occasionally gesturing with both of her hands. She was obviously a much better driver than I am as I could never have managed such a close relationship with my attention so divided. I don't think she had any idea where she was going other than following that truck but I could be wrong. I'm so very glad that she was following the truck and not me.
That is the epidtome of 'highway hypnosis.. Bet that if asked, she would not be able to recall most of her trip..
