This is generally what traffic 'engineering' is all about - it is a math problem. Maximize flow. That is how you get an extensive network of one-way streets, because they are exceptional for moving a large number of vehicles at high speeds. I just hope that the work of everyone here at RTH and around the city has helped to shift our thinking away from a 1950s focus on engineering to a perspective based more in human-scale traffic and transportation planning. Just goes to show you how hard it is to overcome the legacy of past decisions though.
