A Time Road Rule is the other Road Rule a player must beat in order to "Rule" the road. It is the time record under which a player must rush from one end of a road, to the other. Beating the rule leads the player halfway to full road rulership, the second rule being either the Showtime Road Rule when in a car or the Day/Night Road Rule when on a bike.
Players should note that leaving a road ends and cancels the timer, making it impossible to exploit multi-road shortcuts.
If the player beats a Time Road Rule offline, he progress in his offline career but if his time rivals that of his friends, it will be published online.
In Freeburn Online, a player who beats a Time Road Rule will be featured in the "Today's Best" section. If the player beats a Time Road Rule someone else has set, they player will send a "smugshot" to whoever had set the previous record, and vice versa.
