@fiesty76 and everyone else reading this great thread. Another very important thing we all must remember is to be careful when it comes to being on medications or being sick/flu. These can dramatically change up our reaction times or perception. I saw it happen to someone I loved, who wasn't feeling well. Instead of calling a friend or relative to take him to dr, he drove. And wrapped himself around a light standard, dieing instantly. Fortunately no-one else was hurt.

@gingerw, You make a great point about how medications can possibly interfere with our reaction times. I'd not thought about slowed down responses while driving and ill but that makes so much sense. Thank you for adding that reminder.
