FWIW, in 40ish years of being on bikes, the ONLY time I have ever been hit by a car was "just running around the block" Doing 15 mph and got hit by a lady turning into her driveway!!
I had full gear on!

There comes a point that it's just not worth getting on the bike with that mindset. Before I put on kevlar pants, boots, jacket, gloves just to drive a mile and a half to the hardware store to pick up one bolt, then come back home and take all that shit off, I'll drive the truck.
