Re: Pedestrians aren't the only ones who matter.

In rural areas it is easy to tell the difference between a local road and a "highway".

In urban areas, only limited access roads are considered "highways". Names are often outdated and have nothing to do with what constitutes a highway. No one in his right mind would consider Kings Highway a "highway". That term is used for roads where you are allowed to travel at a high rate of speed.

Describing a street as a "highway" is just confusing. Just like including sidewalks when referring to a "street", although the legal definition of "street" includes the roadway and the sidewalk.

When someone wants to refer to the sidewalk, that is what they call it, not the street although legally they would be correct, but everyone would be confused.
