REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON TRAFFIC REGULATION IN MUNICIPALITIES; ONE-WAY STREETS

THE DATA APPEAR TO CONFIRM THAT THE DESIGNATION OF STREETS, HITHERTO UTILIZED FOR TWO-WAY MOVEMENT FOR ONE-WAY TRAFFIC MAY MAKE AVAILABLE ADDITIONAL LANES, MAY NEARLY DOUBLE THE CAPACITY AND MAY MATERIALLY INCREASE THE AVERAGE RUNNING SPEED. REDUCTION IN ACCIDENTS, PARTICULARLY BETWEEN INTERSECTIONS, OF AS MUCH AS 50 PER CENT MAY BE EXPECTED. PROGRESSIVE SIGNALIZATION AND CONTROL OF SPEEDS IS GREATLY FACILITATED. PUBLIC APPROVAL IS WIDESPREAD FOLLOWING A FEW SCATTERED DISSENSIONS DURING THE EARLY DAYS OF THE CHANGE. WITH ADEQUATE INFORMATION AFFORDED THE PUBLIC, THE NEW REGULATIONS ARE EASILY ENFORCED. /AUTHOR/
