Three things I've learned that have stood me well over the years.
1. Aim to hit the gap, not miss the object (this applies to stationary and moving objects). You will naturally gravitate to what you are looking at.
2. Accept at some point, you will get cut up. With this in mind, road rage dramatically reduces.
3. Treat as everyone on the road, including yourself, as an idiot. When your proven right, at least you are ready to take as much action to avoid the situation as possible.
