Sorry to have inserted death but that usually is the most serious issue.

Pedestrians are involved in between 200-260 accidents a year in Hamilton. I would guess that a large number of these would be adults.

Of those incidents, 40-60 result in serious injuries.

Divide that by age, then figure out what number occurred on non arterial one way streets and then ask what number were "caused" by one way streets and you will end up with a miniscule number.

The point being that you lose power in your arguments to eliminate one why streets by using the Lovejoy approach.

I would stick with the "its better for business" approach because money talks.
