Make sure cars around you see you. Watch for head movements and glances in mirrors because both are indications that the driver is getting ready to change lanes. This has saved me more times than I want to try to count.
Watch out in parking lots. There is a huge percentage of people that think just using the rear view mirror is sufficient while backing out of a parking spot. These DA's don't really have any idea what is behind them because they can't see anything on either side of them. Thankfully these people have only got me while I was walking and smacking their windows and yelling got them to stop. I got backed into 2 times on Black Friday...
