A lack of political and financial support has caused current (1988) freeways in parts of the US (1988) to operate at full or over capacity. Construction can no longer keep up with increasing demand. New concepts are required to use the existing freeway system more effectively while retaining the desirable features of the automobile. The proposed system is one possible solution which can be privately financed and make significant improvement in freeway use.
