Hoons you can't see coming as turning the head can make you even less stable.

The unicycle itself is safer than a bike, so issues there, but the environment it is operating in must be considered.
Point taken I spose, I've gotten so used to my uni I can almost ride it everywhere I would ride a bike and even some places where I wouldn't ride my bike. You are right about looking behind that is tricky to do and there are some rare occasions where I would come to a complete stop before crossing roads as I can't see if there's potentially a vehicle behind me.
