Lets be realistic. First if you don't own a bike the average person does not notice them. You own one you see them everywhere, you look for them. Drivers don't. Easy fixes to be more noticeable, lights even during the day, bright colored clothes, flashing LED that can attach to the back of your helmet, LED turn signals, bright is better.
Always and I mean always keep it in first gear at stops. Enter intersection with an escape route, check those mirrors, listen for squealing brakes or loud motor speed from the car coming behind you. Position your bike out of blind spots. Ride within your ability and assume the drivers around you have no skills
