i don't look to see if other drivers are looking me in the eye. i look to see if they are stopped and whether i can make it if they are not stopped. i always try to be ready to take evasive maneuvers if anything changes from what appearances were. it's that and a whole lot more plus luck and lots of luck. don't be complacent. i ride nearly every day and every day riding is every day practice. but all of this doesn't mean a thing. i could still get smoked in the blink of an eye. all of that said, be careful, good luck, keep it between the ditches, rubber side down, and shiny side up. i hope you uncle makes a full recovery and rides for many many more years. there are a couple of other things that will help: a headlight modulator, front side lights that are bright(mine are so bright that i get flashed in the day time), brake light modulator that flashes continuously, and a higher brake light(drivers' eye height), and keep the brake on while stopped so, that the brake light or an auxiliary flashes. be safe.
