Those are called streets.

I sometimes ride 65 miles, so roads work better for me than streets.

No those are roads. A Street is a road that will cross an Avenue. Streets usually run north and south and avenues east and west depending on what city you are in. Anything that is for a vehicle to travel on can be called a road.

I understand what works better for you, but what is responsible is another story. It works better for me if I can drive 90 miles an hour to work. I could sleep in a few extra minutes, but I canít do that cause not only is it illegal, it is irresponsible and dangerous.

Interesting definition. I had never heard that one before.

Is this to you about responsibility or being courteous? If you do not yield to me out on the road, you're not only being discourteous, but you are breaking the law. On the other hand, I am well within my right to ride my bicycle on the road, but you say I am being discourteous by doing so. I fail to see your logic.

Originally the word "street" simply meant a paved road (Latin: "via strata"). The word "street" is still sometimes used colloquially as a synonym for "road", for example in connection with the ancient Watling Street, but city residents and urban planners draw a crucial modern distinction: a road's main function is transportation, while streets facilitate public interaction.[1][2] Examples of streets include pedestrian streets, alleys, and city-centre streets too crowded for road vehicles to pass. Conversely, highways and motorways are types of roads, but few would refer to them as streets

Because if the posted speed limit is 55MPH you are supposed to be traveling at 55MPH. If I am traveling at 55MPH and come upon a cyclist traveling 20, I have to slow down 35MPH which then creats a very dangerous situation not only for the cylclist, but also for me. Common sense says that if I can only travel 20MPH I should not be on Hwy 321. Why not let a kid ride his big-wheel down the road? He is well within his rights.

Oh and you should really use something other than wikipedia to do you research, you do know that anyone can go and change what is on there right? Actually Road is older (Latin Via.) You have to have a road before you can pave it.

Seriously though, if you want to gain knowledge and be able to try and give a Latin lesson, you should really go to the library and not count so much on the internet. The World Wide Web is awesome, but knowledge still comes from people who know. Iím not trying to knock ya, just giving you some advice. Do with it what you will.

Really, I'm just trying to help you out here. I do think you are an intelligent person, but when people start quoting Wikipedia they start losing credibility. And one day you may quote that to someone who actually knows what they are talking about (like you did with me.)

I seldom do any research, but I love to quote wikipedia because it makes me look stupid. Makes me feel like I fit in better here.
