No more stop lights.

Never thought of the idea that how people walk and avoid each other could be used on cars to help avoid collisions and make intersections safer.

That's the thinking behind a trial Ford has been demonstrating as part of a government-funded program in southern England. It's based on vehicle-to-vehicle technology (V2V) and the concept of how pedestrians navigate through busy crowds without colliding with one another or coming to a full stop.

I think the Engish have that down already...it's called a roundabout. You can travel long distances in crowded English cities rarely coming to a full stop. Of course, you need a country where everyone knows and politely obeys the rules.
