The terms road, highway, street, avenue and the like shall be interchangeable as designators of vehicular by-ways providing access to individual parcels and tracts of property, and that commonly considered as a component part of a road shall also be included in the definition of the term. A "road" shall be the physical embodiment of such a by-way irrespective of prior platting or planning.
The part of a trafficway which includes both the roadway, which is the traveled part, and any shoulder alongside the roadway. Where there are unmountable curbs, the road and roadway are the same. If there is a guardrail, the road is considered to extend to the guardrail.
A road is an identifiable route, way or path between two or more places. Roads are typically smoothed, paved, or otherwise prepared to allow easy travel; though they need not be, and historically many roads were simply recognisable routes without any formal construction or maintenance. In urban areas roads may pass along and be named as streets, serving a dual function as urban space and route.
A strip of land along which one may pass from where it is too tiresome to be to where it is futile to go. All roads, howsoe'er they diverge, lead to Rome, Whence, thank the good Lord, at least one leads back home. Borey the Bald
