The road or path in a dream suggests our own individual way forward. Just as in dreams, an individual vehicle represents the dreamer’s body and external way of being, so the road reflects the way of doing.
Any obstacle in the road will reflect difficulties on the chosen path whereas turns in the road will suggest changes of direction. Crossroads will offer choices, while a cul-de-sac would signify a dead end or non-success.
If a particular stretch of road is highlighted it may be a period of time, or may mean an effort.
