I've run off and on over the years and developed the same approach. It's saved my butt a few times. I have the same approach with riding. I always assume the driver doesn't see me and maintain as much as possible an escape plan. Again it's saved a few accidents. Interestingly, sometimes we're not seen or more commonly drivers don't realize how fast we're moving.
