This seems to be lost on the vast majority of motoring dolts, who instead look in the rear-view mirror or over their shoulder and pick a gap that's a quarter of a mile back. And then hit the brakes and wait for the gap to come to them, thus making everyone behind them slow down too.

It's a metaphor for life. Some people create and seize upon opportunities, and some people wait for opportunities.
This. And it seems most people look behind rather than forward. I'm glad I'm not the only one who made this observation and association.
