A lane on a roadway that, depending upon the time of day, changes direction of travel. Sometimes, as in Snellville, Georgia, the direction of travel is noted by an electric sign every 200 feet hanging across the highway. Other times, as in parts of Maryland, there is nothing but a sign.


| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 |

From 5am to noon, lanes 1, 2, 3, and 4 are Southbound, lane 5 is a turn lane, and lanes 6 and 7 are Northbound. From noon to 8pm, lanes 1 and 2 are Southbound, lane 3 is a turn lane, and lanes 4 through 7 are Northbound.
The suicide lanes on 78 always creep me out just a bit.

when there's a median lane that cars going in both directions can turn left in.

the definition above is what i have always known as the pussy lane.
the suicide lane is the opposing traffic lane on the Golden Gate Bridge, where nothing but little plastic cones and two or three feet of air separates cars going way too fast
