Two elderly women were out driving in a large car—both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were
cruising along they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red but they just went on through. The woman in the
passenger seat thought to herself, “I must be losing it. I could have sworn we just went through a red light.”
After a few more minutes they came to another intersection and the light was red again, and again they went right
through. This time the woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned
that she was losing it. She was getting nervous and decided to pay very close attention to the road and the next
intersection to see what was going on.
