What is a Freeway

freeway driving

Freeways, also called expressways, interstate highways and turnpikes, are multiple-lane roads without any traffic lights, stop signs or railroad crossings.

When freeways are not congested, weather and road conditions are favorable, and there are responsible drivers on the highways, freeways can be a fast and safe way to get to your destination.

California Vehicle Code Section 21960 prohibits or restricts the use of freeways by pedestrians, bicycles or other non-motorized traffic.
