  • When driving on the highway, drivers stay in their lanes.
  • Lanes are clearly marked with lines
  • When making a right turn or a left turn onto a street, you might have to get into a turning lane.

  • There are four other houses on this lane.
  • Barb and Dan live on Rasberry Lane. (This would be the name of the street.)
  • The lane is wide enough for just one car to use it at a time. It's a narrow lane.
