Freedom of traffic…!

A town in Germany removed all traffic rules and guess what! The number of accidents plummeted from one-a-week to zilch!

Reason? Not having to look at signs and signals, people are paying more attention to the road and to other things on it! Funny, isn’t it!

The town now has two general laws in place – a speed limit of 30 MPH and yield to the right. And the Govt. saves 5,000 pounds a month in traffic sign repair bills.

I cannot imagine what will happen if this were done in Bombay or Bangalore… any guesses? πŸ˜›

    why… thank you very much! Its never been called that before πŸ˜‰ It does take a special something to bring out the flavour. I believe the right word is "churn" (more rambling under the pretext of it being late)

    I have an icecream bowl on my blog… on the RHS (right hand side) … does that count… (its late here too :P) … err.. wont they take the small bowl with (apparently) more ice cream?

    welcome to my blog… do come back for seconds if u dig the flavour…

    very interesting psychology! it's along the same lines of fill a big bowl with ice cream (and less amount of it) and fill a little bowl with more ice cream and people seem to take the big bowl. ok maybe that's not related but it seemed to make sense in my head. it's late.

    This just proves (I knew it, I knew it, I knew it) that you didn't read that whole post or the post after that!

    Hi Zebra,
    Teasing you? Wait till you get hold of the Vaio? Dont you have it already? You sent me a config, remember! Did you get lost on the way to the store due to lack of GPS?

    Hi Sand-piper!
    *shaking head from side to side… very disappointed!*

    Hi AV,
    Precisely why it should happen! Save the tax payer some dough!

    Hi AD,
    poor you… Aren't you glad you were not driving an electric car!!

    Hi Anu,
    Next time someone will try to hit ur vehicle while driving, make use of the puppy-dog eyes and flash them a smile – they will crash into someone else πŸ˜›
    Is Bangalore really that bad traffic wise?

    Hi Ava,
    Yep – they are very careful as they try to find a gap in the junction to squeeze thru it… However, what I was getting at is – to make this a permanent fixture. A signal broken like one day is like a portal open for a short time – people try to rush in. But if the portal is open forever, then the rush may not be necessary.

    Hi Ripples,
    Your id is very corny as it reminds me of the KS ads!

    Hi UH,
    That should be money making time for the Train company then πŸ™‚

    If all traffic rules are removed from Mumbai, the real estate price will reach rock bottom as people would have to stay in their car only for days.
    *shiver me timbers*
