Streets without traffic signs

Get rid of all traffic signs and rules, except two: “Yield to the right” and “Get in someone’s way and you’ll be towed”, and watch a dramatic decline in the number of accidents. Reports here and here. It would be really interesting to know under which circumstance it works and under which it doesn’t. By analogy, the safest car would be one that felt really unsafe, but wasn’t.
