I ride, as others have said, working with the assumption that if the other drivers can cause an accident, they will certainly try!
Now, that said: 1.) I keep my Fog Lights ON at all times. 2.) I have and use a Headlight Modulator. and 3.) Always, always, always look at the other driver. While they may not consciously "see" you, our ancestors, and thus we are "wired" to be "on guard" for any animals that turn and look at us, even in our peripheral vision. It's a subconscious "threat response" when one might be potential prey. I know from my SCCA Road Race days; that when a Corner Worker shows you a Yellow Flag they damned well "expect" to see you nod your head in acknowledgement. A moving helmeted head, turning even slightly to look at you, even from inside a race car is a very noticeable thing.
