Wow...as my teenage daughter says, "Stupid people everywhere, doo-dah, doo-dah..."
Regarding target fixation, I was with two other riders at the side of I-40 at TN/NC border waiting for a flatbed. We were in high viz and standing on the dirt just off the paved breakdown lane. We kept on hearing "BRRRRR"...."BRRRRRRR" and concluded that drivers coming toward us were fixating on US in our high viz and veering into the rumble strip at the edge of the right lane toward us. To test our theory, we took off our jackets and stashed them out of sight, then returned to our spot just off the paved surface. No more "BRRRRRR".
Remember what the MSF instructor taught you? "Look where you want to go and you'll go there." Unfortunately the same concept works if you look where you DON'T want to go...you'll go there!
