"A good science fiction story should be able to predict not the automobile but the traffic jam."
- Frederik Pohl

Interway  
  Computer-controlled highway.  

The Interway is a computer-controlled highway infrastructure that controls all vehicle movement within major cities and between states.

Jonathan felt his heart beginning to beat harder with each sudden jerk of the toggle, and the booming bass emanating from the caršs MuzSat link only intensified the pounding in his chest. The Interway was clear, and Tarris piloted the car like he was raging on some biovid game, high into the bonus levels. He calmly hummed as they slipped through the hot Midwestern night.

With the biochip came huge advancements in bandwidth. With bandwidth came leaps in technology to control and monitor vast transportation issues like aviation and road congestion.

See Road Stud Traffic Camera Reads License Plates for some background information about how a smart highway might be implemented.
