Could you help me understand how law uses word HIGHWAY
in this context?
S 1201. Stopping, standing, or parking
outside of business or
residence districts. (a) Upon any highway outside of a business or
residence district no person shall stop, park, or leave standing any
vehicle, whether attended or unattended, upon the paved or main-traveled
part of the highway when it is practicable to stop, park, or so leave
such vehicle off such part of said highway, but in every event an
unobstructed width of the highway opposite a standing vehicle shall be
left for the free passage of other vehicles and a clear view of such
stopped vehicles shall be available from a distance of two hundred feet
in each direction upon such highway.
In American law, the word "highway" is sometimes used to denote any public way used for travel, whether major highway, freeway, turnpike, street, lane, alley, pathway, dirt track, footpaths, and trails, and navigable waterways; however, in practical and useful meaning, a "highway" is a major and significant, well-constructed road that is capable of carrying reasonably heavy to extremely heavy traffic.
