I start looking at my rear view and side mirrors a lot more often when I see someone start doing some stupid stuff in front of me.

Absolutely. I have to watch for all the distracted drivers who are texting, shaving, putting on make up.

A lot of driver don't do this. It is amazing how long they can ignore the ambulance or fire truck behind them with lights and siren going while they cruise down the highway and even ignore the oncoming traffic that is pulling over. We try not to use the lights and siren unless we absolutely have to it makes too many drivers unpredictable when they finally notice you.

You should be spending a lot of time looking in the mirror. That is where trouble comes from. Not so much from in front.
