The 8 Most Dangerous Roads in the World
More deadly than shark attacks or plane crashes, these are the 10 most dangerous roads in the world. Statistically you’re more likely to die on a road than in a terrorist attack or any other means. So if you’re keen to make it to old age take a detour around these fatal highways.
1. Sichuan-Tibet Highway, China
China’s road safety record ranks as one of the world’s worst with around 97,000 fatalities every year. At 2,142 kms long, China National Highway 318 takes drivers up through the world’s highest mountain range deep into Tibet to the Nepalese border. Altitude sickness, badly maintained roads, extreme weather conditions and driver error make this one of the most dangerous roads in China – so therefore – the world.
