We look, but we don't see - at least I don't. I've lived up here in this pretty rural area for 11 years now, yet every time I head out on a local road where I know every bump and curve, I see a house I've never SEEN before.
Recently I was chatting with my wife while driving and suddenly saw a deer standing in the swale RIGHT BESIDE THE CAR! I should have seen it 50 yards back, but my poor mind was elsewhere.
This is a big danger in motorcycling; car drivers don't see one when they should.
