I agree with you 100% with oneway on ways.

On routes, I'm not so sure.  If a route runs in only one direction,
and you follow its constituent ways in the opposite direction, you're
not following the route. It's an existential, rather than a legal
question, and I'm not enough of a philosopher to solve it.
