I try to be very alert when driving, I watch for pedestrians, bicyclists, other motorists, traffic hazards, etc. However, I have noticed while coming up from behind a recumbent bike recently, that they don't profile and register to a motorist the same as another person on a bike because of their lower profile. You can say to motorists be more alert, but the fact is that if you're less likely to be seen, you need to quit thinking of entitlement and start thinking about making yourself more visible.
