Here's my translation, FWIW

"Lane. Lengthwise strip into which a roadway may be subdivided,
whether or not delineated by longitudinal road markings, as long as it
is wide enough to allow the flow of a queue of automobiles, other than
motorcycles."

So in Spain a lane is a concept of a linear part of a road which is
wide enough to be used by a line of automobiles, whether or not it is
marked by painted lines. I believe this is a common definition in many
other countries as well.
