My 14 year old kid had a great idea last night:  have auto-based GPS  systems 
warn the driver when they are in 100yds of a biker.  that gentle  reminder 
could improve our visibility

=v= I would say "misperceive" rather than "see."   Motorists
ignore more laws, more serious laws, and with much more  serious
consequences; but since this is the norm, the police have  taken
to ignoring all but their most egregious offenses.  (Most  of
them are plunked behind the wheels of cars themselves.)
