@slodrive, re one-way/two way argument:

There are people much more knowledgeable than me on this subject, but I can tell you that I have never met a person from outside of Hamilton that has said "I really like all the one way streets, because I find it easy to get around". The people that like it are people who know the area and like to make quick cross town trips. I have heard many people say that they don't like to go to Hamilton because of the one-way streets. I always found that bizarre, because if you are a tactical driver with decent skills, one ways make driving in a grid system quite easy. My guess is that outsiders don't like it because when you are looking for a destination and are unfamiliar with the street names, the one way traffic moves to fast to negotiate comfortably. Whe a driver is looking for a street and then realizes they can't move over 5 lanes in 4 car lengths to make a turn, they understandably freak out a bit.
