The 25 Deadliest Roads in the World Aug 31, 2017 by Jet (Driver Weekly)

BR-116 in Brazil

This Brazilian federal highway has earned the nickname “Highway to Hell.” It spans Brazil from north to south, making it among the longest roads in the country at 2,725 miles long. The region’s unstable weather conditions and a large number of blind corners paired with steep cliffs make certain stretches of the 116 driving hell. You will likely want to drive slowly to stay safe and to enjoy the panoramic views.

This road is among the country’s most important because of the vast areas it connects and the large concentration of truckers. It also has the unfortunate reputation for being the worst in the world for sexual exploitation of children. There are 262 spots along BR-116 where authorities have found children being sold for sex to drivers and workers.
