Ferrari Freeway

Seeing a Ferrari stopped at a stoplight and accelerating to 30mph only slightly faster than everyone else looked sort of sad. So I decided that there needed to be a place for a supercar to use its speed in a practical purpose. So from DC-NY, for example. Those roads are crowded, railroads still take 3 hours minimum, and planes involve time at the airport. So a nice, straight roadway for cars rolling at over 150mph would be nice. DC-NY in an hour and a half. But, of course, the proposition would be expensive. To have a safe road, there would have to be a pretty large shoulder for steering errors. That's a lot of space for only a few cars. So then I thought, a high speed railroad could do that in one quarter of the space. The rest of the world does, but America is just a little different...
