you're absolutely right. Hence this statement:

I wouldn't want Golf Links to be considered a safe, downtown, mixed-use street yet the fact is, it's miles better than downtown's five lane, treeless, synchronized-light freeway.

The comparison is simply to show that the traffic volumes aren't any different on these one-way compared to their two-way counterparts. And in many cases, the two-ways carry more traffic per lane. That is the single biggest argument brought up by opponents of complete streets or two-way conversion. These numbers destroy that argument (not that I expect it to matter with some of them...ideology is often more important than fact at city hall).
