"In the US where there are multiple lanes in each direction (a fact of which you appear to be ignorant)."

ON URBAN SURFACE STREETS?

I live in LA - I assure you there's no such thing as "fast lanes" on surface streets - that is utter nonsense. Freeways and highways, yes.

You really think you're going to save gas by driving faster than the flow of traffic on surface streets? You're crazy.

I gassed up yesterday, and as i finished a YELLED out RAPE! IM BEING RAPED I TELL YA! RAPE!!!! I heard at least six people snickering and shaking their heads in agreement.

Bad Samaritans one and all

This does not speak well of the American citizenry. Maybe it's time for a change. How about Norton/Locker in 2016 (don't think they'll make it on the strength of write-ins this year).

Who was President when Kitty was slaughtered? Another Texan.

It appears we have some definitional issues.

A "surface street" is a street that is not a freeway. A freeway is a street with controlled access such that there is no cross traffic. (In California, the designation of "freeway" is a little broader. It includes any street where adjacent land has no right of access).

Thus, an "expressway" -- where there are multiple lanes and cross traffic -- is not a freeway. I don't remember any "expressways" in LA, although when I commuted from my apartment in Palms to my office in El Segundo, Venice Boulevard came close (it also came close to a destruction derby), as did La Cienega from near LAX to the Baldwin Hills.

In Fresno, we have several urban streets with multiple lanes in each direction, 50 mph speed limits, and signals set for around 50 mph. Those are, by definition, "urban surface streets." Slower traffic in lanes other than the far right cause significant congestion, leading to missed signals and unnecessary use of fuel. Apparently, several of you have been living sheltered lives.

It's the 110 Freeway - always has been. You're wrong, as always.

Care to dig deeper?

The six-lane Arroyo Seco Parkway (part of State Route 110)...

I repeat, for your apparently limited ability to comprehend:

IT IS A FREEWAY.

Don't worry, little republichild

We don't expect you to admit when you've been proven completely wrong - that would require you to grow up.

You just keep living in your kindergarten-playground reality - the adults find you quite entertaining.

I'll confess that I'm unfamiliar with the Arroyo Seco Parkway. I commuted the 110 (then the 11) from Pasadena to Downtown for several years, and still think it's the most entertaining freeway around, what with those 35 mph curves, 5mph exits, and stop signs where merging traffic signs should be -- not to mention the lack of shoulders over much of its length.

I am, for the same reason, also familiar with the Arroyo [no Seco] Parkway, which was the surface street into which the Freeway led (going home) or started (going to the office).

Overall, though, I obviously agree with Ron, who obviously agrees with me. Joe is simply engaged in a diversion.
