You're right this is a genuine concern. I think the simple fact is - motorcyclists are actually better drivers the vast majority of the time. I wrote an article that addressed this head on, people are so distracted when they drive cars it seems. Like you said, people are on their phones even though they know that's illegal. I've included the link if anyone is interested www.biketests.co.uk/blog/5-reasons-more-londoners-should-get-a-motorcycle-licence/
There's definitely a disconnect when you're in a car, it doesn't seem as real and for some reason people aren't as responsible when driving. The best thing to do is exactly what you are doing, stay alert! And remember, you get to enjoy those roads a lot more than they do!
good piece - written any more?
