The fast moving thoroughfares are intimidating and even the smaller side one-ways make it much more difficult to reach a final destination.

I've often wondered about all the one-way side streets. Were they implemented at the same time the major arteries were? Or were they a response to adjust the system of flows, once driver behaviour changed from the major conversions?

Anyone know the history about that?

To be honest, while I can understand how a traffic engineering perspective might advocate for King and Main or James and John becoming one-way pairs, I have a harder time fathoming why streets like Bold, Duke, Robinson, Forest, Catherine, Mary, and Hughson were restricted to one-way flow.
