SMIDSY (Sorry Mate I Did Not See You) is a real issue that we as riders are mostly on the receiving end of. Humans are fallible beings, and research shows that our visual system evolved to accurately track objects at around 20 km/h, moving across our field of vision, not coming towards us. So as humans, we are terrible in judging speed accurately when an object is coming towards us and moving faster than the evolutionary 20 km/h speed limit.
