When is a Freeway Not a Freeway?
"The term 'freeway' isn't used by regular folks most places outside the west coast and Texas, except among professional engineers and anti-roads groups.
And it is a loaded word."
The FHWA's Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices confuses the point. Here's their definition:
"Freeway-a divided highway with full control of access."
Samuel explains why this definition is wrong-headed.
