"To get anywhere, or even live a long time, a man has to guess, and guess right, over and over again, without enough data for a logical answer."
- Robert Heinlein

Interway  
  Computer-controlled highway.

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.
