Turn signals are definitely the most helpful thing for avoiding accidents with cyclists. Cyclists, for the most part, try to be as predictable as possible to avoid getting hit, but cars need to do the same so that cyclists can adjust their actions to avoid a possible collision. Nearly all of my close calls have been when I think a car is doing one thing, so I bike predicting that action, then the driver suddenly does something else.

Also a simple check of the mirrors and out the side window just to make sure nobody is there before you turn is always a smart move.
