Just be ready for any morons. Seriously, people's minds seem to numb once they get bhind that wheel.
Oh, and if you don't have lights already, get some. Also be sure to ride predictably....some people may say do what you want/feel safest with....but if the driver can't figure out what you are going to do, then there is a very high chance of getting into a crash.
And finally....it takes some brass balls to deal with certain areas...there have been times where I have to force drivers to do what i want....such as me jumping into an intersection the second it turns green, so the opposing left turn traffic is unable to "squeeze" me into missing the light. Greenlight chicken, as I call it.
