      "...For a number of years now, a number of cities in
      Europe have been experimenting with the removal of all
      traffic signs – including traffic lights, stop

      results. Various towns in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Sweden,
      New Zealand – even the UK! – have joined in the experiment.
      Contrary to the expectations of those who might expect
      multi-car pileups throughout the cities, traffic
      accidents have been dramatically reduced (in one town,
      dropping from about eight per year to fewer than two).
      Part of the reason for the increased safety relates to
      the fact that, without the worry of offending traffic
      sign mandates, or watching for police speed-traps, or checking the
      rear-view mirror for police motorcycles, drivers have more time
      to pay attention to other cars and pedestrians..."
