It's my job to keep my focus on the road.

I could understand blaming them it these guys were standing on the side of the road with strobe lights and air horns, but they're not, are they? If a crowd of motorcycles, riders, and photographers is too much for my "focus" to overcome, I should either slow down a bit, or take up stamp collecting instead.
