In a continent that loves regulation, drivers give anarchy a go
Considering Europe’s passion for regulating anything that moves (and most things that don’t), it’s a bit surprising to see European cities so specifically do away with rules. But that is what’s happening.
Planners in seven European cities are experimenting with motor vehicle anarchy, and the results have been surprising. From the article -
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.
Where else could we apply this idea?
