It wont be. I actually originally devised that experiment for a project that I was working on for a consulting client. We tried it with people of various ages including young children (who actually did not do as well as many adults).

A problem that most drivers have is that they do not look for enough ahead. I became acutely aware of this when I first started learning to drive on a track. It is a very hard habit to break.
