Back pedal brake and toe clips. Is this dangerous?

Is it? I'm thinking about it, but without being able to freely move the crank back to balance, and having foot stuck to pedal, in a tight situation am i going to go down?

My Presto has a back brake (foot brake) and I use clipless instead of toe clips. The only problem I see is the fact that you accidentally brake more than before. The advantage of using clipless is that you can now brake at any point in the spin.

I use toe clips and a coaster brake with no problems on my single speed. I do have an oh @#&^ brake on the front wheel, but it rarely gets used,
