I do sometimes fall prey to some complacency while driving because I feel so deprived off what is going around me at times -- locked away in a cage. I force myself to remember that I am making payments on the car and how much it will cost to get it fixed if somebody hits me/I hit somebody. I also focus on the fact that 90 percent of my driving is with my wife as my passenger and the last thing I want is for her to be hurt because I wasn't paying attention.
