European cities do away with traffic signs

Spiegel Online reports that traffic signs are being removed in 7 European cities to good effect. ”European traffic planners are dreaming of streets free of rules and directives. They want drivers and pedestrians to interact in a free and humane way, as brethren — by means of friendly gestures, nods of the head and eye contact, without the harassment of prohibitions, restrictions and warning signs.”  Results are traffic flows better and there are fewer accidents. I think this is an example of people being autonomic.
