The deadliest roads in the world

Have you ever wondered what are the world’s most dangerous and treacherous roads? Indeed, most of the time, civil engineers plan out their roads to be as safe as possible, but some roads were built years ago with little safety in mind.

This begs the question: Why are there dangerous roads, and why do people continue using them? Well, it could be because, sometimes, that is the only way to get to your destination.

In this video, we bring you the world’s deadliest roads, as well as the most dangerous mountain roads. For example, there’s Skippers Canyon Road in New Zealand. The road was completed in 1890 and was carved out of the cliff’s face in seven years for miners.

It is presumed that it has claimed hundreds of lives but that doesn’t stop people from using it.

The Killer to Pangi Road in India was built by local villagers hundreds of years ago and has not been upgraded since. You can then imagine how dangerous it must be. It is only open in summer months and features a six-mile (10-km) stretch where rocks hanging over it look like they could fall upon the road at any moment.

The North Yungas Road in Bolivia has literally nicknamed “The Road of Death.” It is almost 50 miles (80km) and features vertical drops of as much as 3,000 feet (914.5km) into the Amazon rainforest below. It is estimated to boast over 200 hairpin turns.

If you enjoyed reading about these scary roads, then watch the video to see them in action.
