So I'm thinking of just making my own SNOT road system. Heck, i don't think I'll ever use a whole lot of curved roadplates, either.
As for more useless LEGO parts, how about 90% of the BIONICLE/Hero factory pieces? Wow. (The remaining 10% could be useful for my town since I'm contemplating a police enforcer mecha)

Also, there is a somewhat old (January 2011) topic in the General Discussion about this: Link Bumping from that long ago probably wouldn't be good, but you could see what other people answered with.

When I first got back to building, I thought "all technic parts are useless to me, I build city and castle"....then I had to dig out my Technic bits to build a custom horse-drawn carriage hitch.
I thought all Bionicle parts were dumb and useless... and then I saw some amazing non-mech stuff where Bionicle parts are used on buildings and layouts as accent pieces or part of a vehicle. Amazing! (sorry, I don't have any links to these).
The last thing was that figured i'll never use any gears - but I was wrong again! Now I'm working on something that will probably use many tiny gears, and a couple months ago I found a use building microscale for some "useless" flexible tubing (the smooth kind).
So for now I have to say that nothing is useless, just that perhaps I have not yet found a use for it yet.

i find wings hard to use. can't seem to find a place for them unless u do airplane mocs. the other part is 2xX bricks. good only for fillers under plates. other than that, not really versatile as it "eats away" your baseplate area.

I have a couple of Four Way Intersections from Airport Layouts, that i just can't integrate.
But a solution for the Intersection pieces is simple, use them as T-Junctions, by building a raised sidewalk over one of the exits. THis gives you what looks like a 3-Way stop, or can be integrated with Traffic Lights.
You can also use one of the exits, as a parking spot, in a busy part of town. However, if i'm really lazy i just leave random LEGO dirt/blocks/bits at that intersection, thereby blocking access in that direction like what many construction companies do here.
Just my thoughts!

I actually think Technic parts are really useful for making motorized elevators and car lifts for buildings, plus some Technic parts can create really nice stone effects, such as in this brilliant moc by tiberium_blue.
