4) Does "I am in a jam" mean "I am in a difficult situation"? Yes
5) Is this sentence good grammer? "Please come and help me. I am totally in a jam." Yes
6) I know one definition of "hideaway" is a place for safety, privacy
Then what does it mean when we put "hideaway" in a road or highway? Can you give a sentence in which it appears?
7) Is the sentence in good grammer?
