By remaining focused on the road and vehicles around you, you can greatly increase your chances of arriving safely.

Combine this overconfidence bias with the familiarity of driving the same roads every day, and it can lead to tragic results. This is why people use a cellphone, send text messages or eat while driving. They believe they can handle it.
