getting rear ended is one of the things Im most paranoid about.
I always stop in traffic with my bike pointed to the left of the car in front of me, about 10 feet back minimum.
If the car in front of me puts his car in reverse and the back up lights come on, or if I see a car in the mirrors that is not slowing down, Im out of there. I dont wait for the last second, as soon as I think I might be in danger I will be beside the car in front of me, and then some.
I would rather look like a total jack-ass playing it safe, than get rear ended and look like a pancake.
I cant do the Marty Feldman thing and point my eyes in different directions - sometimes you are looking at other risks and just dont see the guy coming in the rear view mirror.
