When I did my test drive, it occurred to me that a lot of drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists were staring at the car as we passed by (of course it didn't hurt that we were in a bright red car). Does anyone think that the chance of an accident might increase because the other drivers around you get distracted by your "exotic" car? I'm particularly thinking of someone rear-ending you because they get distracted approaching a stop ("Whoa! Check out this cool car in front of us!") or they look sideways at you on the highway and rear-end the car in front of them. Does anyone drive differently in the MS because of this possibility? I've avoided two potential rear-endings in the past by leaving a big space in front of me when traffic stops unexpectedly and then creeping forward as I notice the car behind me slam on his brakes. Is anyone making anything like this a habit?
