Abstract
The information superhighway has been referred to as the 'superhypeway' with good reasons. Promises for a National Information Infrastructure (NII) are tempered by technological problems and social reality. In keeping with the highway analogy, several problems in implementing the NII agenda are seen as speedtraps on the highway. Speedtraps discussed in this paper include: deregulation of the telecommunications industry, costs, the role of industry and libraries, censorship and private issues, public acceptance, and network culture. If libraries are to remain viable information intermediaries, they must become an integral component of the processes they serve
