What are your thoughts on this and if you do listen to music, any tips to be able listen and keep safe at the same time?
I've done it before in the deep past, but not for a long time. Being able to hear what's going on around me is what keeps me alive when I'm sharing the road with folks driving multi-ton death machines of death. I'll do my slow jogs with headphones on, or my exercise walks, but with cycling it's a NO GO at this station. I personally am in the "this is a bad idea" camp.
