everybody should have a leash even if it doesn't help you to relaunch.

I'm very dissapointed to see that nearly a quarter of the riders ignore the public hazard & the resultant bans by using no effective leash (It's been reported many times that a leash that's not attached to you does not really work in an emergency situation, effectively counting as no leash at all).
