"In the 46 crashes where the cyclist was run over from behind, 10 of the motor
vehicle drivers failed to observe the cyclist, 5 drivers were under the influence
of alcohol or drugs and the vision of 5 drivers was obscured for some reason,
e.g. glare. For the other crashes, the reasons were many and varied or unknown.
Thats 10 out of over 200. And is equal to the number that had obscured vision or were drunk. Sure it is 10 too many but is pretty small considering that cycling is NOT THAT DANGEROUS to begin with.
I am also dubious as to my ability to implement any strategy that would avoid this situation for me. I believe that all the ones I have contemplated (including yours) will either be ineffective or would expose me to more risk of "death by other".
