That's sounds right. I was pulling from my frequent downtown experiences where its 3 or 4 lanes of one way travel and hadn't considered the single lane scenario.

Riding the left side of a good one way street is one of my favorite ways to ride. People are much more cautious making the left than the right. Being left hooked by somebody going the same direction as you is pretty improbable imo.
