- Apr 7, 2010"...For a number of years now, a number of cities in
Europe have been experimenting with the removal of all

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
