    Default numbers

    How should I write numbers in a short story? The number is in reference to a highway. It is for my creative writing class. Here is the sentence how it stands right now.

    I was cruising to the new mall along Highway three-thirty-one.

    Thanks so much

    Hello Unreg,

    For highways and motorways, you use numerals, e.g. the M4, Highway 331, etc.

    Best wishes,
