Ryan.

Speeding and road configuation ..2 separate issues.People increase speed if they can get away with it and have ample room to do so.

"(i.e. fatality rates rise exponentially with vehicle speed). "...Well I dont need a PHD to figure that one out


Does a 4 lane 1 way "compel" someone to speed.. perhaps, but 4 lanes either way if doing the speed limit should be of no consequence to a fatality rate.

More lanes reduce congestion if no bottlenecks occur.
Putting your foot down harder on the gas pedal creates speeding.

For the record.I dont like all one way streets when navigating around the city, but to get through the city is does help.
