That's nothing! My Delorean can hit eighty-eight miles per hour in thirty seconds flat!

Fry had to explain the wheel, so there are no wheel-cars left. Roads could exist for several reasons; to make the hovering mechanism more effective, because it's always been done that way, to make navigation easier and more ordered, to allow street addresses and access to buildings.

Sorry, I haven't read much of this thread, but I think Space Pilot 3000 gives us a bit of an answer:

While Fry is admiring New New York, we see the hover cars lined up on the street. One of them suddenly goes up and flies over the top of them (the driver is obviously impatient), to which a police car suddenly chases it.
I would say in 3000 they would still have the law that you have to drive on the roads, and aren't allowed to fly wherever they wish, as someone mentioned in the first few posts.

Hmmm, that would explain why when you see soo many Sci-fi flicks that although the traffic is flying, it's still traffic, all flying the same direction at the same altitude, kinda like the roads we have now, but like 10,000ft up.

Just going to throw in my two cents, i think it would be helpful with navigation , also in some areas you might be forced to hover above the ground to prevent accidents or interfering with planes.

Imagine trying to fly around sky scrapers and OTHER hover cars on your daily commute to work each day.

Or it might act like a 3 dimensional multi lane system like highways have more than 2 lanes (sort of like a regular chess board to a 3d chess board*).

Note:*3d chess is a real game , think of it as a multi tiered chess board.
