The world's most dangerous road

I thought the most dangerous roads are in Iran where more than 20 thousands die each year because road un-safety. But this one, in Bolivia, has seized the title of the world's most dangerous road and looks like it should be named "Death Road".

I've been on a similar road (maybe a foot or 2 wider) here in the US, but it didn't have truck traffic, just a few motor homes.

Yikes! I'll never complain about our roads again.

Are those little piles of rocks along the edge in one picture road markers or tombstones?

Thanks, Winston.

OMG! Reminds me of home (in the country). We had dirt roads higher up on the mountains. One time I was in an accident, but I don't remember it. We ran into a boulder, because there was too much dirt covering the windshield. No, I was not driving! LOL.

Impressive and scary. It would be fun to drive in a Land Rover, with no other traffic, but otherwise - yikes!

I thought the 12-mile or so run the Green Zone in Baghdad to the international airport was supposed to be the world's most dangerous road - maybe things have improved lately.
