Who needs road rules?

There is a theory that if you take away the road rules everyone would have to driver slower and safer to make sure they don't have accidents. There is evidence to back this up. Think about your local street. Imagine kids were frequently playing ball in the road. How fast would you drive? If there was an accident the kid would get hurt, but not killed. Parents are scared their kids will get hurt, so people move off the streets to the front lawn.This gives the cars a chance to go faster, this makes the roads less safe, so the kids are told to only play in the back garden. This means the cars can go even faster. Now if there is an accident it will be fatal. Take a look at this footage from an intersection in india. The cars all keep moving. The speeds are quite slow though. Everyone expects someone to get in their way. No accidents.

There has to be a simpler way!
