Road signs suck. What if we got rid of them all?


Some cities in Europe are undergoing a fascinating transformation: they’re getting rid of all of their road signs.

For us in North America, this might be a terrifying thought. But we’ve all seen video of traffic, particularly in Asia, where masses of people, buses, cars, and motorcycles all seem to be able to manage. The video points out that where this has been tried, pedestrian accidents have fallen sharply. But it also points out how these traffic controls don’t serve disabled communities very well.
