Ryan >> We don't need more studies to tell us that one-way streets are more dangerous for children

This is a quote from the study you provided...

"Finally there is higher volume of traffic on one-way streets in Hamilton (documented as a 10 to 50% increase after
the change), a variable associated with up
to a 13-fold increase in injury risk."

A more telling study would look at accident rates were per car, not simply per km of roadway. Since most of the one way streets in Hamilton are downtown, where population density is highest, its little wonder there are more car-pedestrian collisions.
