With american drivers? It would look like a road of death with crashed & burning cars on it.

Linguistic. It is a German word. In the US the term is interstate or freeway, herein GB it is motorway, in France autoroute.

among other things, nobody wants to pay for it. for example, if you've got a highway where you're expecting people to drive really high speeds, like well over a hundred or whatever, you can't just pave it and maintain it in the haphazard, lackadaisical way your murican highways are taken care of around here. for high speed traffic like you need the surface to be exceptionally smooth and consistent, a lot smoother and more consistent than american highways are. this is for safety, it prevents accidents, which at high speeds would obviously be a lot more serious. and of course this extra degree of surface quality control costs a lot more money. and nobody wants to pay it.
