Check out this interesting piece by Kenneth Todd in Cato's Regulation magazine that looks at traffic control through a libertarian lens: The article includes a review of the development of traffic control through the 20th century, as well as many ideas that might at first glance might appear counterintuitive, that is until you reflect a bit more on your own driving experiences. This piece has some interesting ideas that deserve a shot. Of course, knee-jerk nanny-staters wouldn't like it, but if they spent less time in traffic, they'd have more time to find all sorts of other things to complain about. (Via Planetizen)
