Cycle of no development

Categories: ,
Times Online reports that roads without traffic rules may be safer.
Traffic lights, road signs and white lines would be removed from many high streets…question of who had priority would be left open deliberately, making drivers more cautious…pedestrians, cyclists and cars are encouraged to mingle…idea is to create space where there is mild anxiety among everyone so they all behave cautiously…creating an environment where it just doesn’t feel right to drive faster than 20mph…allow pedestrians to cross where they want…lights and other controls hamper instead of harness human nature, causing untold delay and harm.

It’s not India we are talking about, of course, but Britain. They are trying to be what we already are!
