I'd also add you should never ride in a static manner in traffic or in multilane environment with cars around you. Constantly move within your lane from side to side and back and forth relative to cars around you. You want them to be focussing on you and what the bloody Hell you are up to, not letting you fade away so they can take you out when lane changing.
