When you're on vacation, the most intriguing ideas storm your head. Like accelerating/decelerating a car with electromagnetism.

I got that idea while driving today and hearing my brakes in front of a traffic light. Also, I recently read about the Large Hadron Collider on Slashdot.
These two things gave me the idea about braking a car with electromagnets. This would cut down on having to replace them every 150 Mm.
I came off that idea when I realised that it'd probably take very strong elecromagnets for braking. But what about acceleration? Would it be possible to accelerate a car with electromagnets like you accelerate particles in a particle accelerator?

Any math genius out there?
