I'm sick of taking a chance with my clean driving record every time I attempt to do something safe, albeit illegal.
By LIKE I SAID, it's not reasonable to think about these fantasy situations because it will never happen. You can whine all you want about it, but there is no way that WE will switch to either system in the near future.
Even in Germany where they are very strict with their driving laws, I still encountered road raging drivers who were not ticketed for their actions. On the other extreme, there is a small town that you mentioned in the Netherlands, but will never happen in the foreseeable future in North America.
