Only point in the comment to disagree with really is:

") Spend as little time as possible in the danger zone - go fast through it - even though it means you'd be hurt worse if something happene"

spend little time in the danger zone - yes, but not by going fast through it....

I had to say "what?" about this part:

" steering even slightly erratically can make you visible to cars."

Umm...

Also the part about going fast to "spend less time in the door zone" is stupid.

'I had to say "what?" about this part:

" steering even slightly erratically can make you visible to cars."'

FWIW, I do that sometimes when riding on an arterial road when I know high speed traffic is approaching from the rear. I basically just steer back and forth a little in an effort to register as a moving object. I know from experience that moving objects are easier to see than still objects.
