Same with a bike.
Sure riding a bike is just like a car, to include riding at the same speed as all the cars on the road too, eh? I assume your ability to ride at the same speed as the car/truck traffic is why you have no interest in what approaching traffic from the rear may be doing.
And yes, by keeping aware of approaching traffic to the rear, I have avoided being struck by motorists who were driving the speed limit (55mph) and gave no indication that they intended to pass safely.
