There is some truth to cyclists being "more aware" though. With nothing shielding the sound and view of their surroundings, and with their heads often a foot or two higher than car drivers, cyclists have much more information available to them than drivers who are separated from the outside world by glass and metal pillars -- and who often have the radio playing.

So the same person with the same capability of awareness would actually be "more aware" on a bike since they have more information coming in.

Obviously this doesn't account for he fringe cases - cyclists with headphones on and professional drivers, etc :-)
