highway

america's national road system makes it possible to drive coast to coast. from the atlantic ocean in the east to the pacific ocean in the west is a distance of more than four thousand kilometers. or you could drive more than two thousand kilometers and go from the canadian border south to the mexican border.

voice two:

you can drive these distances on wide, safe roads that have no traffic signals and no stop signs. in fact, if you did not have to stop for gasoline or sleep, you could drive almost anywhere in the united states without stopping at all.
