Oh... you do psychic mind readings huh. Well your psychic powers aren't too reliable. I haven't driven without a seatbelt for over 30 years. And I wouldn't think of cycling without a helmet. You see... the data proves that those are real, actual methods, of reducing injuries. Unlike... some of the popular ideas that just make people feel better.

And... I do wear bright clothing (as part of my kit) too. And I use reflectors and sometimes... even a blinky in DAYLIGHT. But I realize that they don't really reduce the risks any measureable amount. I have to accept that.... because its true.
