SUPERHIGHWAY JOINS TWO BIG AMERICAN CITIES
A thirteen-mile superhighway linking two of the nation’s greatest cities has just been opened between New York City and Newark, N. J.

Or you could just sweep the streets…
Electro Magnets Clear Tacks Off Universal City Streets
ELECTRO magnets on a bar mounted on wheels and trailed after a car make the streets of Universal City, California, safe for motorists.

New Road Paving Makes High Speed Safe (Sep, 1933)

New Road Paving Makes High Speed Safe
Superspeedways from coast to coast are visioned following the recent discovery in a Boston, Mass., pavement testing laboratory of a new type of non-skid, resilient asphalt paving. It will permit motor cars to travel at speeds up to 100 miles an hour, the laboratory’s engineers say. Walled-in traffic lanes, with block signals, would permit such speeds in safety. Hundreds of different kinds of pavement were tested, and Sir Malcolm Campbell, world’s speed king was consulted during the tests.
