dvancing the right of all road-users to use commonsense on roads free of vexatious traffic controls logo 2 Would our roads be safer and less congested if we were free of traffic lights and free to filter? A body of evidence suggests they would. With journey times at an all-time high, and 30,000 killed or hurt on our roads every year, the current system is plainly unfit. We complain about the traffic and blame other drivers, but could it be traffic controls that are the problem? Traffic lights take our eyes off the road, a recipe for danger. They make us stop when it's safe to go, a recipe for rage. They cost the earth to install and run. But when lights are out of action and there is no priority, we approach carefully and filter in turn (FiT). As courtesy thrives, congestion dissolves.

I hate to ruin this for you guys but if there weren't any traffic lights in England we would soon get used to it and start being selfish crazy drivers as per usual.
