Another consideration is the rider sitting for hours in hot weather motionless wearing protective gear or sitting in wet/cold weather. Both good reasons to let a bike move and not sit in car traffic.
Too much crap on the shoulder. I can directly correlate the two flats I had this winter to riding on the shoulder. I've been splitting for 25 years - you get over the nervousness. In fact, I have to remember to be nervous so I don't ride like an ass when splitting.
