Drivers eyes should not be fixed on one point for more than 2 seconds, and even less at higher speeds. A little head movement while looking around will allow a person to see around the blind spot of the vehicle’s frame and to get vision around outside objects like shrubs and buildings that can block objects like bikes and pedestrians as well as cars: on Road Safety tips-
