NEAR LONDON (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Leaders in one town near London are sick of drivers disobeying traffic laws, so they're throwing them out the window.
The laws, anyway.
The town scrapped traffic lights, stop signs, sidewalks and all the traditional markers directing traffic.
Instead, leaders say pedestrians and drivers will have to pay more attention to what their doing and work things out on their own.
Safety groups agree dropping traffic signals is a dangerous gamble. They worry drivers will just end up confused and cause more problems.
