It has been proposed that in certain areas councils should turn off their traffic lights at certain times of the day.

This is currently being tested in Ealing:

"The council hopes the move will see drivers learn to co-operate and cross junctions on a first come first served basis.

It came up with the idea after the lights failed one day at a busy junction and the traffic flowed more smoothly than before."
