Didn't watch the video, but I'll assume Bolivia's "Death Road" is on there.  I mountain biked down it a couple years ago but there's basically no more truck traffic on the road anymore since they built the new road.  Fun ride.

The cover photo looks edited. However it reminds me of Fritzowl though.

Especially being that the sign looks like it would be on the shoulder line or in the right most travel lane if it was truly placed in that location.

I stopped watching the video after seeing too many video clips that weren't even of the road the clip was talking about.

The cover photo looks edited.

And the commentator even says as much.

Highways that are probably going to be in this video (I haven't watched it yet):

* Yungas Road, Bolivia
* Troll's Ladder, Norway
* That other highway in Norway that gets washed over a lot
* Karakoram Highway, China-Pakistan
* Dalton Highway, Alaska
* That one really twisty highway in Italy
* Dragon's Tail Highway, North Carolina
* That one really steep bridge in Japan

Iíll probably give this a watch today but if US 129 over The Dragon segment appears then the video is automatically discredited.  I donít get why there is so many people who push US 129 as the most geographically dangerous US Route when the Coronado Trail of US 191 blows it out of the water.  Even US 550 over Red Mountain Pass and US 212 over the Beartooth Highway are way more geographically challenging than The Dragon.  The Dragon is akin to something like your average segment of something like CA 245 out west, itís a total cupcake compared to the actual dangerous stuff.

Yep. Fourth-most dangerous road in the world: US 431, coming just ahead of a literal cowpath in the sky.

That was clever :)  But I don't think I'll watch the whole vid.

Some of those look like they ought to have gates that close in inclement weather.  Commonwealth Avenue in the Philippines looks like it should have barriers separating the fast lanes from the slow lanes (or even the fast lanes from the medium lanes from the slow lanes).  Would it be that bad for it to lose a lane or two in each direction?

"Moses transports"

Since this is a roadgeek forum, I thought that referred to Robert Moses at first.

Nothing in Detroit presents a physical hazard and you arenít likely to be car jacked at a light either.
