There are so many obvious issues here, it is not even funny. What is funny, is that when you bring them up people go "oh, you are so negative"
Roads are not flat. All highways are curved with sides being lower when the center. Even the slightest inclination of the road will force to make an angled seem between the tiles, which will create a significant vibration in that place of the road. It will be destroyed in a matter of months.
