Civilization Rules

Forget how people react during disasters, or when under undo stress. The real test for any civilization is what happens when a key traffic light goes out and drivers must revert to primal right-of-way rules. I'm always impressed when this goes off without a hitch. Sure, traffic ebbs and flows a little more nervously and less aggressively than usual, but this afternoon on the way to Super Target it ebbed and flowed all the same, with no screaming, shouting, honking or shooting.
