I am old enough to remember Hamilton having a thriving bustling downtown core, with all the one way streets. In fact some of the one way streets we had them have been changed to two way streets. Down town's problems are not one way streets. Downtown just is not relevant any more. Society changed and downtown does not meet the needs any more.

One way streets are not a problem to cross or walk beside. Use a little common sense. Thousands of people walk there every single day and never have a problem. I have many personal accounts of pedestrians being irresponsible and down right stupid. If a pedestrian insists on challenging cars the result is foretold certainty. You keep making it out to be a blood bath out there and it is not. We have a system of laws and conventions in place that make it very safe for pedestrians, just follow them. Drivers do.
