Adding sundry terms
;central reservation
strip of land or barrier separating a dual carriage way
;cookies, cookie munching
:cookies are the dots on unconfirmed (pacman roads). Cookie munching (or road munching) is driving over such roads (and in the process confirming them)
;directionality
:whether a road is one-way, two-way or no-entrance
;divided highway
:see dual carriageway
;dual carriageway
:a road or highway in which the two directions of traffic are separated by a central barrier or strip of land, known as a central reservation or median
;grade
:the level of a road with respect to surround roads. So a road would normally be a level grade. A road going underneath in a tunnel would be a -1 grade. A road going over would be a +1 grade. At complicated junctions such as freeway interchanges there can be many levels. So on a flat map we assign levels to show that while the roads cross, they do not connect because they are at different heights
;junction
:in [[Cartouche]] the point where two or more roads connect; also referred to as a node
;median, median barrier
:strip of land or barrier separating a divided highway or motorway
;motorway
:freeway; the major road system in your country
;munching

;node
:in [[Cartouche]] the point where two or more roads connect; also referred to as a junction
:starting point for a driving route
;pacman roads
:unconfirmed roads marked with dots(cookies). Roads that have not been driven on since created or significantly edited in [[Cartouche]]. Driving over these roads earns you points and turns your car icon into a Pacman-type character that "munches the dots"
;ramp
:a freeway entrance or exit; sliproad. Ramps may be on-ramps or off-ramps. Ramps are often at a different grade from the connecting road or freeway
;road munching
