  1. Stroad

    A stroad is a type of thoroughfare that is a cross between a street and a road. The term was first reportedly coined by American civil engineer and urban planner Charles Marohn in 2011 as a commentary about paved traffic structures in the United States.According to Marohn, a stroad is a bad combination of two types of vehicular pathways: it is part street—which he describes as a "complex environment where life in the city happens", with pedestrians, cars, buildings close to the sidewalk for easy accessibility, with many entrances and exits to and from the street, and with spaces for temporary parking and delivery vehicles—and part road, which he describes as a "high-speed connection between two places" with wide lanes, limited entrances and exits, and which are generally straight or have gentle curves. So Marohn defines a stroad as a high-speed road with many turnoffs and which lacks safety features. In the commentary, Marohn states that stroads do not function well as either a street or a road.Stroads are known to be slow and inefficient at moving traffic, and can be dangerous as described in the video titled "The Ugly, Dangerous, and Inefficient Stroads found all over the US & Canada [ST05]" which is meant to critique stroad design while comparing it to road design in the Netherlands. Marohn says that stroads are common in the United States and Canada, and much less common in countries such as the Netherlands. He criticized stroads as "dangerous, expensive, and ineffective".
