My bicycle manifesto: First, know that motorized traffic owns the road. The law may say that you have the same rights, but don’t believe it. You are a stranger on their playground. Second, assume that all drivers are trying to kill you. Assume either they don’t see you or they just pay you no mind. Third, toughen up. Most drivers will pass you safely if it is convenient for them. But, if they have to slow down for you, be prepared for honks and yells or worse. Riding the roads is not for sissies.
