Many '通り' 'toori' examples are actually a literal 'way' as in street.

toori ni.... expreses the idea that something takes place in the same way as something... or it could be negative also.. means doesn't take place..

"expreses the idea that something takes place in the same way as something" does not make any sense at all.

I have always thought of 
「〜 通りに」 as ”like 〜”

and
「〜通り」as "same way as 〜"

ローマにいる間、ローマ人の通りにします。
while in rome, do like the romans do.

ローマにいる間、ローマ人の通りします。
while in rome, do things the way romans do.

the meaning doesn`t change much, but thinking of it like this makes translation less complicated.
