A ok, aca en México les llamamos carriles laterales, son tres o dos carriles separados que tienen accesos a los diferentes comercios o establecimientos que están al lado del freeway.

Ok, here in Mexico as I said before we call them lateral lane, three or two lanes specially built to simplify the entrance or exit to the different kind of stablishments on the side of the freeway.

@lunarCarpet: Not that I know of,the only thing the DOTP is thinking about is mass transit...

About those last pics:

First two are PR-52 in Cayey

Third is PR-52 in Caguas

Fourth is PR-52 between Caguas and San Juan

Fifth and sixth are PR-52/18 in San Juan

The rest I'm not sure...

I believe all this metric distances/imperial speeds are there to avoid traffic discussions, as probably 99,9% of all the cars in the Island (and their speedometers) are in imperial. I even can imagine the consequences of metrication:

Quote:
- Look, agente, there says maximum speed 110, my speedo says 105, I was going fine...
- (sigh) , man, but there says 110 kilometers, and you were at 105 mph.
Never been there, but I bet gas is sold in gallons too.

No, petrol in PR is sold by litres. It seems that the only left-over from the past is the speed limit being posted in MPH.

What were the experiences in Australia, Canada and Ireland when they converted from mph to km/h speed limits?

It's amazing that such a small island has such wide freeways.
