Here is a clipping from an article comparing One Way and Two Way to support the OP's article. from http://www2.oaklandnet.com/oakca/groups/...

A study conducted in 2005 showed that conversion of one-way streets to two-way operations in Denver, Indianapolis and Lubbock, Texas, increased accident rates by 25 to 37 percent. Conversely, conversion of two-way streets to one-way operations reduced accidents in Sacramento, Portland and the State of Oregon reduced accidents by 10 to 51 percent.2 A 1998 study showed that one-way streets at downtown intersections had 22 to 25 percent fewer accidents.3 Other studies show similar results for motor vehicle accidents and also indicate that conversion to two-way operations increased the number of pedestrian accidents.

To everyone who has made up their mind that Two Way streets are, without question, "better" than One Way streets, are you willing to accept that they are more dangerous?
