The scariest and most dangerous roads in the world

Imagine driving in a beautiful country and enjoying the spectacular scenery when out of nowhere you hit a sharp turn and the railings disappear. If that’s not terrifying, we don’t know what is!

Hazardous roads such as Old Yungas (“The Death Road”) in Bolivia and Perdikaki Road in Greece are sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. They are so unsafe that the risk of driving off the edge of a cliff is actually common.

According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, “nearly 1.3 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day” and “road crashes are the leading cause of death among young people ages 15-29, and the second leading cause of death worldwide among young people ages 5-14.”
