This is also a mountain biking tactic, "when you are coming off, come a long way off". If I find myself coming off I tend to try and kick the bike away from me as best I can.

The theory is if I hit the ground at 30mph I'm more likely to roll on my own then if I am tangled up with the bike.

Not sure how it would work in traffic unless, as susannahf says, you are headed for the pavement.
