Proud Infidel ranting about the ongoing war against democratic and secular values (Don't fool yourselves)! Maybe a voice of sanity in a wide ocean of madness.

Fewer regulations= Fewer accidents

Here is something interresting news from Svenskt Näringsliv (Swedish Buissnes- Swedish only, but there might be some links in English out there).

A number of cities in Europe has got rid of traffic lights, traffic signs, pedestrian crossings, and even in some cases even the sidewalks.

Mayhem and carniage you think?

In fact the experiment showed that traffic related accidents declined heavilly!

Motorists aswell as bicyklists and pedestrians took more care and the traffic still worked as smooth as before.

That's what you get with regulations. People stops taking care, because they think that the regulations them selves magically will protect them!
