Step 1: Throw it in reverse, but don't turn your head
Now accelerate, but watch your mirrors. Whatever you do, don't turn your head. You're gonna need both hands for this. Also, by watching your mirrors instead, you actually see more, since you can still see what's going on in front of you with your peripheral vision.
While you're doing this, look for a good place to turn around. You won't need a ton of room, but you can't do it in an alleyway, either.
