Therapists, here's timely advice for you from the exacting world of traffic research: when you drive to the office, don't use your cell phone, don't eat your breakfast, don't spill coffee on yourself, stop fiddling with your radio, be supercareful at intersections, and please try to see those invisible stop signs you never really stop at. Or if that's too much to ask, at least cultivate more awareness of the possible dangers of the road, as you'd counsel your clients and patients to do in their own lives. If you pay more attention to the road and less to distractions, you have a better chance of seeing, and getting out of the way of, that 3,000-pound gorilla roaring up in the lane behind you.
