Well, I prefer wide open roads, whether they be a state route (SR 400/GA 400) or an Interstate (I-285).


Be well,

Bryant

I like secondary highways that pass through the cores of small towns. Case in point- I-76 through Eastern Colorado is incredibly boring but US-6 through Eastern Colorado is actually fairly pretty, and they are only a few miles away from each other (this being where they aren't multiplexed).

I voted state highway, but US highway works as well. My main preference for type of road to drive on (time not being a consideration)  is two lanes and doesn't bypass towns. If I'm in a hurry, put me on an interstate.

State highways, they have traffic signals   :-D (well so do county and US roads, but state roads are my thing)

I like freeways. I don't care if its an interstate, a county road, a state road, or a US Highway. Or anything in between. Just freeways.

So I voted interstates, since that is the only "all-freeway" system.

State highways are widespread and connected to all parts of the state and go beyond..just like the U.S. routes, only they serve more towns.

I typically like state routes the best, as they're the most fun to drive (well the 2-lane ones with small towns anyway), but I cannot pick one favorite, as the type of road widely varies from my like of it.

I like them all, but when it comes to just driving somewhere (like commuting, running errands, going out), I prefer an Interstate highway or freeway if available.

It depends on the type of journey you're making. I've only been to the US on vacation so it's not as if I've used the roads to commute to and from work every day. I use the interstates or any other form of grade separated route to get somewhere quick but when I've time to burn I take the smaller roads.

My favourite must be the county roads. The laid back nature and scenery is much more pleasant than the bigger roads.
