BBQ red lights – lessons from France

The French are experimenting with legalising running red lights for cyclists – “griller les feux” as it is called so descriptively in French.

It seems this does not increase crashes, but makes for smoother trips.

What makes traffic safer – more rules or less rules? The successfull implementation of “self explaining roads” in NZ seems to indicate that commonsense can work.
