c. Emergency vehicles such as ambulance and police cars may also use the shoulder to by-pass traffic congestion. d. Shoulders provide bicyclists to ride out of vehicle traffic. e. On curbed roadways, shoulders move the gutter away from travel lanes. This reduces the risk of hydroplaning, and reduces splash and spray of storm water onto pedestrians using an adjacent sidewalk. f. Shoulders provide structural support of the roadway. g. Shoulders move water away from the roadblock before it can infiltrate into the road’s sub-base, increasing the life expectancy of the road surface. h.
