There was a really interesting Wired article a few years back on
eliminating traffic signals altogether, and mixing traffic with
pedestrians in a confusing way that automatically caused everyone to
slow down and be more careful with the result being greater overall
safety. It had been implemented in some northern European cities
I still think the right answer is to let the cars drive themselves,
and avoid human piloting altogether, but that's still a few years off.
