Well if the consequences are low and the likelihood is low why would you think that it is highly necessary to protect from the hazard?

Like lots of these discussions. The vast vast majority of cyclists in the world don't choose to complicate life with unnecessary equipment.

I don't require a snot wipe when walking either.
Those with special need to protect their hands have my blessing if they choose to wear protective gloves, while walking or cycling in the city.
It shouldn't require a bag full of gear and a changeroom to transition from pedestrian to Bluebike rider, seamlessly and spontaneously, as is the intent of the systems elsewhere.
who has crashed MTBs more than enough times to feel that gloves are essential there, but that's not what we're talking about here.
