Driving Advices for USA – Traffic Regulations and Road Usage Peculiarities
Previous hints
Outside the territory of large cities, highways are usually divided into three types - Federal or Interstate Routes (they cross several states), American or US Highways, and State Highways (are located in a certain state only). This division is not formal; as a rule, the higher the status of a highway is, the better its quality is.
As a rule, moving directions are divided on federal highways, and each freeway has at least two lanes. Drivers should not move to the side to prevent a violation – road borders have special notches, because of which wheels make a very loud and obnoxious screeching sound.
It is possible to enter and leave federal highways only through special ramps (β€œexit”). All of them have a unique number. Experienced drivers can easily identify the location by these exits – the number of exits is the same with the number of miles on many highways.
