Let me see if I can find a couple of good examples (combination of
aerial/ground location) from the region where we're currently running a
ground survey (eastern Uganda). Not seen anything like the motorway -
the example looks pretty European.
When in doubt, I usually tell our mappers to use `highway=unclassified`
if it looks wide enough to allow regular traffic to pass (hopefully
cars, at the very least motorbikes), and isn't a dead end.
