Most drivers swerve for pot holes, squirrels, and the like, so it's not an issue of seeing a recumbent rider. It's a question of whether they are paying attention. One can only hope to attract enough attention to be seen, recognised, and avoided. Some have opined that the unusual appearance of a recumbent bike or trike is an advantage in attracting attention. Perhaps this is real, perhaps it's wishful thinking. The bottom line is that anything you ride on the roads needs to be equipped with some combination of lights, clothing, flags, etc.
