I ride about 2500 miles a season. A good portion of that is commuting. My ride is very rural so there's not much traffic. Paradoxically, that can be a problem. I notice that many drivers are less attentive when traffic is light and are much more likely to be texting.

I noticed a big difference when I put a flashing red light on the back of my bike. It's just enough to make drivers aware and they generally give me a very wide berth.
