eyes in the back of your head
Knowing what's going on around you in traffic is so key to safe riding. So here are two tips to knowing what's behind you without turning around.
You're riding through an intersection. An oncoming car is waiting to turn left. After you pass through they will either turn left behind you immediately or wait. If they turn immediately you generally have at least a gap of space/time behind you. If they wait to turn then there's a car bearing down on you.
People like to wash their cars. A lot. They get them all real nice and shiny. Back tailgates and hatchbacks and bumpers and the like make for occasionally great rearview mirrors.
