Follow the bright white line

From the March 17, 2014 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Most people who have driven at night on a winding two-lane road can probably relate to this situation: You’re coming around a bend when an oncoming vehicle approaches, and the glare of its headlights makes it increasingly difficult to see which way the road before you will turn. Good thing there’s a bright white line on the right side of your lane to show the path ahead! Focusing your eyes on that line as it winds along in front of you tells you what you need to know to steer safely.
