'highway' in Ireland is often a euphemism...barely a 2-lane road where cars pass in opposite directions (in many cases without lots of room in each direction)
There were "highways" where traffic maintained reasonable speeds, but once you got off those, it fairly quickly turned into one lane roads with pull-offs to let opposing traffic get past.
Locally they are called dual carriageways (two lanes going in each direction) speed limit 100kph. Motorways are similar (blue signage) speed limit 120km,
We don't have any problem with the smaller roads or lanes because our cars have a steering wheel and we know how to use it.
