Abstract: We prove a conjecture of Lacey and Li in the case that the vector field depends only on one variable. Specifically: let $ v$ be a vector field defined on the unit square such that $ v(x,y) = (1,u(x))$ for some measurable $ u: [0,1] \rightarrow [0,1]$. Let $ \delta$ be a small parameter, and let $ \mathcal R$ be the collection of rectangles $ R$ of a fixed width such that $ \delta$ much of the vector field inside $ R$ is pointed in (approximately) the same direction as $ R$. We show that the operator defined by

$\displaystyle M_{\mathcal R} f (z ) = \sup _{z\in R \in \mathcal R} {1 \over { \vert R\vert } } \int _{R} \vert f\vert$     (1)

is bounded on $ L^p$ for $ p>1$ with constants comparable to $ {1 \over {\delta} }$.
