I am no expert, but I'll throw this out there. Target fixation is super dangerous. It happened to me bad once. I was tired. In a turn, stared at the curb like a fool, all of a sudden I was headed off the road. Corrected and no issues. My bro in law was telling me yesterday about a buddy of his who rode OFF the Bay Bridge. Landed on a car. Broken pelvis among other things. I don't know him, but first thing I thought: target fixation. You hit where you look. Scan, don't lock.
