People, please! I think that there´s a litlle difference between roads, to highways with two lines and a rescue one separated by some green! Brasil has too few of that second one, all the rest is just a degradeted single line road!

It´s not the third one never! That´s it!

Nope,
the length of a highway system does not depend on the country's size. It depends on the density of population, cities, towns; even in Canada are less highways than in Germany!

Ahh i ain't talking about countries, because when that happens what matters the most is the area of the country.

I bet LA Metro Area has the most extensive and the best highway system among the cities.

You are correct, this is the I-90/ I-5 interchange in Seattle.

The other bridges are not highways, they are just surface streets.

Thanks mate!

My uncle lives in this area of Athens. It is called Halandri and it is a magnificent suburb. It has many small parks and early in the mroning when it is cool you can smell the pines trees from the nearby mountains.
