Driving Advices for USA – Traffic Regulations and Road Usage Peculiarities
Previous hints
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 (“exit”). 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.
Each highway also has a unique number. The freeways that lead from north to south have odd numbers, while the freeways, which lead from west to east, have, respectively, even numbers. The number of vertical lines increases in the direction from west to east, and the horizontal - from north to south.
