The only term I've seen used for highway shoulder in Mexico is acotamiento. Others may have more expertise in other countries.

In Spain we use "arcén".

En Argentina, Paraguay y Uruguay: banquina.

En Perú creo que usan "berma" (aunque no está en el DRAE como tal)

No sé si en México lo llaman "acotamiento" ¿...?

En Guatemala y Panamá: "camellón".

Saludos cordiales.

En México, acotamiento is shoulder and camellón is the divider strip in the middle of a divided highway or boulevard.

Sí, Pablo y David: en México es "acotamiento" y un camellón divide por el centro una calle o avenida.
