Yes - its likely to be a contributing factor - but others must be interacting with this which force the experiences to cluster into a certain region.The brain has so much to concentrate when driving, especially at dusk and at night. So would you think this would contribute to the increased 'mis-perception'?
passengers have seen it - including some on a bus!The view from the passenger seat is so different! When driving I know where exactly on the road I am, in the passenger seat I often feel too close to the left. (Or maybe my 'drivers' are driving too close to the side).
No left-drives and no pattern in terms of vehicle. The only real pattern is that it is always at dusk or night (in the headlights)Were any of the cars left hand drive? Any really low driving position (Mazda 323 for example) or really high (Range Rover). Did they pass any other cars going the other way shortly after - could an oncoming car's headlights acted as a light source?
No - age range to vast and multiple witnesses in more tha one instance.Would visual acuity have any baring - even corrected with glasses/contact lenses?
