A. 
ARTERIAL STREETS—Those which are used primarily for fast or heavy traffic, usually with complete or partial control over access from abutting property.
B. 
COLLECTOR STREETS—Those which carry traffic from minor streets to a major system of arterial streets and highways.
C.

D. 
MARGINAL ACCESS STREETS—Minor streets which are parallel to and adjacent to arterial streets and highways and which provide access to abutting properties and which provide protection from through traffic.

The owner of real property which has been undivided since May 16, 1960, shall be entitled to convey one lot or parcel without being subject to these regulations; provided, however, that the resulting lots shall be in conformance with the requirements of Chapter 155, Zoning. A subdivision shall not include a "division of land."
