I nearly got rear ended a couple days ago. I typically favor the left side of a lane for an escape route when stopped at traffic lights, and watch my mirrors for the driver behind me to stop. No sooner do I check my mirror do I see what's about to happen. At the last moment the driver sees me and moves to their right. I wouldn't have been quick enough on the clutch to get out of the way, but the favoring the left side of the lane saved my ass. Stay vigilant out there inmates!
