Alternately you could go the route of the Daniel Keys Moran did in his Continuing Time novels - see "The Long Run" and "Emerald Eyes"

Short version, all traffic is computer controlled unless you have a license to drive yourself - in a world full of VTOL's (easily changed to grav). The licenses to "drive freely" are very hard to get and there are clubs devoted to doing so - including the concept of 'the long run" which is either an around the world trip or some other very long bit of travel (I can't remember at the moment).

Knighthood (Navar: Diaspora 1804) - Viscount (L'sis: Deneb 0409) - TAS (Vodyr: Lishun 0140)
Count of the Imperial Core (Kadushii: Core 3125)
Starburst for Extreme Heroism with Diamonds - The Assault On Menorb
Medal for Conspicuous Gallantry - The Pursuits at Menorb
