AUTORAPIDO
Faster, efficiency, time

The Autorapido is a controlled access high-speed road system in the South American region of the United Nations of Europe. It runs parallel to several highways and has no speed limits and has never experienced congestion.

Built in 2014, it is designed to carry cars at a faster pace and to alleviate congestion on the normal, free highways. The system started out with Autorapido Route 1, traversing the area between Argentinstan City and Mariobo with fewer exits than the regular highway, no speed limits, and more lanes. Since, it has extended to cover the Argentinstan City to San Francisco sector, Mariobo to Rio de Janeiro, and San Francisco to Florenza.

No speed limit. Sounds perfectly safe. Say that, because of a lack of speed limit, someone crashes. The road then becomes congested. You can then never say that "this road has never experienced congestion."

Not so much of a bright idea after all.

Crashes are isolated. Autorapido has had only one so far. The crash was immediately isolated and one lane was shut down for 2 miles causing a 5-10 second delay to change lanes and slow down but no congestion happened.
