Hey Moylek,

I see your point. However, even in a worst case scenario where someone starts their journey on main, mid way between two intersections, and plans to travel perfectly due north or south of main from their starting location, they might have to walk 100m (maybe even 200m?) to a crossing and then back 100m (maybe 200m?). I think that's reasonable.

My point was mostly that Ryan is exaggerating things to suit his argument.

If, however, one feels the desire to jaywalk because they'd rather not walk so far out of their way, then I believe it's much easier/safer to do so across a one way street rather than a two way. With one way streets, you're almost guaranteed to have a lull or even an extended gap in traffic every minute or so. This rarely, if ever happens on busy two way streets.
