Just this week I watched a bicycling father shepherding his two bicycling children, admonishing them continually to ride along the extreme outer margin of the uncurbed shoulder. Someone backing out of a driveway onto this 25mph / 40kph residential road would not see the kids until it was too late.
At least the article cited says to ride in the same direction as traffic, which does considerably improve one's chances of being seen.
