I believe this 100% and even more so for cyclists who are adept at using mirrors while cycling. Not only am I looking for 2-wheeled road users from behind the steering wheel, but I am much more patient when it comes to getting past them, or NOT passing them at all. I also notice all pedestrians and even stop to let them cross, which in my city really confuses them.
