In Montreal, it would certainly reduce congestion: most cars would end-up in scrap yards and people in hospitals, meaning less traffic.
Many times when the lights are just flashing red to indicates a failiure it reduces dramatically traffic in many places.

Montreal : French 23%, Italians 10%, Irish 5%, English 4%, Scottish 3%, and Spanish 2%....
