The 25 Deadliest Roads in the World Aug 31, 2017 by Jet (Driver Weekly)
Some drivers love going on adventures in their favorite vehicle on the open road. Unfortunately, some roads are safer than others, and even with the latest safety technologies and features, it is best to avoid certain stretches if you can or drive cautiously if you can't. Every country has their own roads that are considered risky to drive along, and when you combine these, you get the 25 deadliest roads for drivers in the world.
Atlantic Ocean Road in Norway
Driving along the Atlantic Ocean Road in Norway is a gorgeous experience but a dangerous one as well. You will have amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean, but try to plan your trip for good weather. The route is fine on sunny days, but you don’t want to drive this route in a storm or fog.
The road crosses over an unsheltered part of the Norwegian Sea on a chain of islands exposed to storms from the Atlantic. This means that when a storm hits, the waves can reach the road in many spots, putting you at a serious risk both from the wet road and the waves themselves. Interestingly enough, this route was first proposed to be an early twentieth-century railway lane, but it never came to fruition. Instead, work on a road started in the 1970s, and the Atlantic Ocean Road opened in July of 1989 and, today, has become an iconic route that drivers must enjoy with caution. Today, it is a National Tourist Route and a cultural heritage site.
