removal of 100s of traffic lights and night-time ambers on 100s more

Having spent a lot of time in the two majot cities in Spain I have personal experience of proven working safe methods of speeding up trafiic without increasing risk.
Pinto, a suburb town of Madrid is home to 80,000 and has exactly zero traffic lights. Instead they have invested in mini roundabouts, zebra crossings, road humps and most importantly PRIDE in their town and when they are trying to acheive.
I have also worked in Barcelona and many 4-way junctions in quieter areas flash amber all night allowing cars to move and pedestrians to cross. Of course it needs sensible drivers and pedestrians and I'm sure Londoners are no thicker than Barcelonians (?) are are we?
Perhaps our driving test should have a citizenship test too.
