Hi,
where the road is not straight and bends, there's a curve. And where it is straight, what is it?

What do you call a stretch of road that is straight in American English? Straightaway? Straight? It's "rettilineo" in Italian.
Thank you Emotion: smile

Only Americans call straight bits of a car racing circuit a straightaway. British people call it simply a straight.
