If you've ever been to Asia one of the rules of driving DOES involve driving on driveways (or fairways, or the sidewalk, or the opposing lane, or whatever happens to be clear in front of you. It's the 1st rule of Asian driving: Always occupy and proceed in whatever clear space is nearest at (2nd rule of Asian driving) the top speed the vehicle can attain, and (3rd rule of Asian driving) never never never ever yield at any time to anyone or anything. That's why a disabled horn in Asia renders a vehicle inoperable).

And if you visit San Jose or Manhattan or any major city at rush hour you'll discover that the Parkways are not misnamed.
