The main point of it was to make sure all car drivers are aware of
motorcycles and know, from a motorcyclist's perspective, how dangerous
heavier traffic can be to a motorcyclist. (Also, possibly, to let them
get their early stupid mistakes out of the way on a 400lb vehicle
instead of in a 300lb one.)

I'll bet you probably only notice the 5% of squids. The other 70%
probably never even catch your attention.
