10 Of The Most Dangerous Roads In The World

Roads have been around for thousands of years as a reliable means of transportation for foot traffic, horse and carriage, cars, trucks, and plenty more. Throughout the years, though, some roads have become rather unstable in a variety of countries. These roads, specifically the ten featured on this new list, are some of the most dangerous that people encounter. And yet, year after year, people still tend to travel over them with their vehicles. Safety comes first, guys!

Trans-Siberian Highway, Russia

While mostly known for the railway of the same name, the Trans-Siberian Highway, located in Russia, is one of the longest known roads in the entire world. Spanning from Vladivostok to St. Petersburg, this road crosses forests, mountains, deserts, and everything else in-between. Unfortunately, it is mostly unpaved and crashes are known to happen regularly.

Highway 1, Mexico

Some parts of Highway 1, located in Mexico, have been paved within the past few years with asphalt, but most of it is simply dirt and rock. Dangerous cliffs without railings or guard rails are known to be along the entire length, too.
