Real World Example Where Fewer Government Rules Improved Outcomes

Instead of trying to micromanage every aspect of safe driving with signs, signals and laws, a better approach would be to utilize what should be the smartest part of the car -- the driver. Just like a poorly designed door needs a sign to tell you whether or not to "push" or "pull" it, a poorly designed intersection needs to tell you when to stop or go. So, a better way to design an intersection seems counterintuitive: reduce the number of signs and signals.
From "Want To Design Smarter Intersections? Use Less Control, Not More."It is as an anti-government concept as one can get. Let people work it out for themselves when they get to the intersection. They do and the intersection is much safer.
