So what you're saying is that you are so focused on the future that
you haven't learned the lessons of the past... ;-)

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
(maybe Denmark?)

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.
