Is there a good reason to make things increasingly complex?

Things are already complex enough at present, to the point people
don't often tag this kind of information...

I've already applied this sort of thinking to school zones, during
certain times of the day the speed limit will be lowered.


However I can't think of any examples when the restriction happens the
majority of the time so I'm not sure what the advantage of making
things overly complicated in this case.
