      Right. This vid has popped up every six months for years now but the point is well taken esp. re drivers waiting at an intersection to make a right turn in front of a cyclist.

      I've seen many drivers look right through me while gauging traffic. I move from side-to-side or raise a hand to catch their attention and sometimes see a startled "where did he come from" expression.

      Drew, the phenomenon is known as "inattentional blindness." Here's a quick Wikipedia summary:

      The Invisible Gorilla Test is a startling illustration of it.
