I'm not sure but I think before racers were equipped with the 2-way radios the team cars had radios to communicate with race officials. Current biggest danger to riders is "road furniture" ie traffic islands/roundabouts. Rider radios might help a bit there though the advantage is surely limited since knowing about an obstacle doesn't mean it's practical or easy to avoid them in high-speed peleton.
