Stay on your part of the road and we'll all survive!
She can't if someone is driving into it, and here is the uncomfortable truth, the reality check, that was drilled into me by my father, when I first
was taught to ride my bike. It was to notice and even drive all the cars around me in my mind, to pay attention to spacing and behavior and notice
I was taught, that if a car has a choice between hitting another vehicle head on, even at 30 miles an hour, or a bike, they'll choose to hit the bike
in self defense, because hitting the car could be fatal to themselves or a child, so to pay attention.
All humans respond to avoid death and injury, and often instinctively. So the bystander or bike would take the hit.
