I used to have that problem all the time. I guess bright yellow and bright red trucks are really hard to see.

Not to long ago, but now I never notice if someone pulls out in front of me. I get Honda's and speed bumps mixed up.

Yea, I think its the color, in my moms monte carlo 2 cars hit her at the same time. It was competition yellow, but I must say don't go with white because I almost get hit once a month on my way to work.

I drive with my headlights on all the time. That is the reason as all these new cars have daytime running lights, safety.

Unfortunately too many people are just unaware of what's going on around them.
