I considered my next step. We were on an eight lane highway with no median between the northbound and southbound. The only thing between them was a four foot high concrete barrier. That was on the left.
When I looked to the right, I realized that the lane must be a little lower than the road running alongside it because the concrete sloped down to the highway.

I wasn’t completely confident though, that it wouldn’t step on the car’s hood, denting it at best, pushing the engine through to the concrete at worst.
That was the nearest we got to the side of the road. To the immediate left we had semi-truck, and whatever happened to be in the lane past that.
