What if there were no stoplights? No rules?
Thursday, May 20, 2004
What if traffic lights disappeared? What if bikes, pedestrians and cars had equal rights on the road? It turns out, at least in one case study in China, that there are less accidents[*].

What's the catch? The drivers have to think. Oh well.

* Sorry for the Salon Magazine link. They'll want you to watch an ad for a day of 'premium access' to read the article. Actually, I went ahead and bought the 1 year subscription last month and I really enjoy it. I can't think of another news site I pay to access, aside from the occasional Slashdot donation.

That said, it would be pretty revolutionary if I could, as part of my subscription, link to an article and get a quota of registration-free clickthroughs, so the first 500 people could read the article via my special URL without having to watch an ad.

Hmmm... I'll have to think about that one some more...
