Traffic lights unnecessary. April 19, 2006 7:01 am

A while back I wrote about a civil engineer/architect that showed removing traffic signals and signs actually reduced traffic accidents. Now I can’t find the article which means it very well could have been in my drafts lost in Blogger’s callous deletion of my account.

Notice that there are no red light cameras in this video. For that matter, there are no traffic lights, stop signs or person directing traffic. There are also no accidents.

Here in America, we have traffic lights.

This is very much like driving (riding) was like when we were in Nepal. Note the large vehicles never slowed down on this video. Our bus would come to an intersection and simply turn without slowing one bit. Might makes right. Also, all that gray dust is diesel exhaust. Great video.
