Immortal Drivers

Does the car engender a sense of immortality in drivers?  Cycling to and from work, and even driving, I witness an increasing number of drivers deliberately ignoring red traffic lights, and making no attempt to stop when they clearly have time.    And who bothers to stop their car or ignore their mobile ringing when driving?  Clearly not the woman in a red Hyundai driving down South Street . Her gear changes were slick so she didn’t have to take her hand off the steering wheel for too long.  They were certainly quicker than the semi driver turning in to Tydeman Road from Port Beach Road, he had to let go of the wheel for a lot longer.
