This could happen to you. Every disturbing, graphic car accident in this video could happen to you, to me, to any one of us or our loved ones. Pay attention on the road. One millisecond of inattention can change someone’s life, and the lives of their loved ones, forever… and ever. The original video was posted by Tanvir Ahmad on Facebook and, after some sniffing around on Youtube, I was able to find it. I’ve only been able to watch parts of it, it was too disturbing for me to watch in its entirety. You may be braver. I’d like… Read More

You may be interested in an article that I came across in A Public Defender, a fascinating blawg. This particular article, Change Blindness and the Fallacy of the All-Remembering Cop, illustrates how faulty a witness’s memory might be. This phenomenon is known as Inattentional Blindness.
