Is it time to get rid of traffic lights?

I recently read comments by Martin Cassini,which he made on B.B.C.Radio4,about considering whether it is time to get rid of traffic lights;since motorists could start using 'common sense'.The outright answer to this question is an emphatic 'NO' since they do not possess common sense,only of a commoner kind!Many ignore the pedestrians,and jump the lights,whilst showing the wrong colour.They also sound their horns far too much these days!They give one another the motorists'BENEDICTION' i.e.the finger movements,thrown in for good measure,as a 'bargain bonus'To clarify my comments thus far;the answer is to retain the traffic lights as a 'strong'deterrent against their 'crass' and unreasonable behaviour.However,very few are good,safe and sound drivers these days!                                                                                                                                                            
                Martin,have you considered how full our A&E Departments,plus mortuaries,would be if as you suggest traffic lights were taken away!Our poor nurses,doctor's and surgeons'would be 'overburdened ' with patients,plus corpses!It's bad enough at the weekends when they,plus our various police forces,and ambulance crews,have to deal with people who cannot hold a drink,but over-indulge,due to their 'piggish'behaviour! So I urge you once again,to please go away,and have a good 're-think' before you make such remarks.
