There is no silver bullet, said someone else, repeating the moronic mantra that the media accept without question. There is a silver bullet: traffic system reform. Replacing standard control with self-control. The savings? At least £50bn a year. Who would be disadvantaged? The purveyors of traffic control systems. No-one else.
