Update: It made Slashdot this morning…
For some time, Hans Monderman has been advocated that the best way to make streets safer is to remove all the traffic control devices – lane marking, signs, singals, etc.
The idea is to make everyone slow down and figure out what’s going on around them. This has been piloted in the Dutch town of Drachten.
Yesterday two readers flagged an article in der Spiegel for me about more cities in Europe trying this out.
Apparently the der Spiegel piece hit the Drudge Report under the caption “Controlled Chaos” :-)
