How to use "Over sight" in context?

The incidence of accidents can be largely attributed to one's lack of vigilance or over-sight. When someone is not vigilant, they may not be aware of their surroundings and might not see something that is causing danger. Repeatedly putting oneself in danger by not being vigilant can eventually lead to an accident. For example, if a driver is texting and not paying attention to the cars around them, they may accidentally pull out in front of someone. If a worker is constantly using their phone at their desk, they may not be aware if someone is trying to sneak up on them and take their purse or laptop.
