We accept a level of risk when we ride, if we go the ATGATT route we reduce the risk, it is possible that we then ride quicker to bring us back near our level of acceptable risk, if I am not properly dressed for riding I will ride slower, as we get older and possibly wiser we take fewer risks due to our experience, as a young rider I could not go a week without a near miss, heart in mouth incident, normally due to excess speed and poor anticipation, as an older rider I hope to avoid putting myself in those situations, ATGATT definitely, the first riders I saw taking ATGATT seriously were German guys twenty odd years ago, having a talk with them revealed that their insurers would not pay the same if inadequate riding gear contributed to their injuries.
Common sense really.
