Can you explain and/or provide evidence as to how/why 3 lanes are safer than 5 lanes?

If a street is carrying a given number of cars at any one time, as a cyclist, I'd like that street to have as many lanes as possible. The more lanes there are, the less likely it is that any given number of cars will be in the lane adjacent to me and my bike.

If Main st., as an example, was 15 lanes wide, the chances of a car being in the lane next to the bike lane is very small, if it is 2 lanes wide, there is an extremely high chance of a car being next to the bike lane every minute of the day.
