It is a necessity and a requirement to keep an eye out to the rear. Nearly all trouble comes from the rear. For example, people who cut you off come up from behind you, not in front. If you are watching to the rear, you won't be cut off. You will see the other guy.

Yes, its always a good idea to know what's going on around you, just don't let it distract you from being in full command of what's going on ahead of the car.

Constantly because you never know when someone speeds past you & you never saw it coming.

yeah, but evidently not often enough, as about once a week I have a close call... just when I've got the blind spot figured out, it turns out I haven't...
