That moment when you learn WHY we park on a driveway and drive on a parkway...

Apparently 'Parking' was the name for the grassy strips along the road... because it was greenery like you would find in a park.

To park a car began as a way to say you were pulling over onto the parking strip to stop so that you weren't in the street. And just as cars changed the normal function and operation of roads, they completely transformed and stole the term parking.

But why is life a highway?
That makes sense. But I still want to know why there are interstate highways in Hawaii.

@LordShadowfire that's an interesting one. I'm picturing someone somewhere still trying to work out the design for an undersea tunnel to California.
