The 15 Most Dangerous Roads in the World

The 15 Most Dangerous Roads in the World.

No clue where their info comes from.  All but #14 are from outside the United States, and I don't know if I've ever heard #14 in a list of most dangerous roads.

Dalton Highway was also on the list, and I doubt it's also in the same calibre as say the Yungas Road (which has now been bypassed IIRC).

Although it may sound like a pleasant trip, The Way to Fairy Meadows is nothing of the sort. It is actually an extremely narrow and dangerous 10 km stretch of road that leads to Nanga Parbat or The Killer Mountain in Pakistan.
well, that's just a fraudulent name then

Hasn't MX 1 been paved for a while now?  Plus that picture is actually of 1D.

One day an OP posted a buzzfeed-like article.  What happened next will blow your mind.

I can't believe that some of these are legal. One small mistake and you dead.

Thankfully, it appears that the road in Bolivia has been recently bypassed by a new road that is much safer. But good gosh, (in terms of sheer dangerousness) the Yungas Road is hard to beat - so thankfully it has a safe alternative now.

As for the Dalton Highway - dangerous and risky as it is - it sounds like, from other roadgeeks here, that other, even more dangerous, roads in Alaska might have it beat.

And the traffic accident in that tunnel in Afghanistan (what sounds like the deadliest road accident ever recorded) might have been a product more of circumstance than an inherent, typical danger of that road or tunnel itself. It was during a time of war (the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan), and two convoys crashed into eachother in the tunnel. That was definitely a recipe for trouble, because as more vehicles found themselves stuck there, Carbon Monoxide poisoning killed a lot of people due to being enclosed in the tunnel.
