We all know that car travel is by far the most dangerous form of transportation. Odds of dying in a car crash are significantly higher than in a plane crash. However, some roads can be considered especially tricky. In this article, we are talking to you about the most dangerous highway spirals mountain highways and tunnels on earth.
1 – Atlantic Ocean Road
It seems that nowadays there’s a way to walk on water, even if you still have to stay in your car. Can you imagine that this 8 kilometers long road runs right along the Atlantic Ocean? Some say it’s the most breathtaking highway in the world.
The so-called Atlantic Ocean Road runs along the northern coast of Norway, and connects small islands between the towns of Moldy and Christiansen. Until 1989, cars were transported to these islands by ferry, but at the end of the 20th century, the Norwegian authorities decided to build an incredible new road, with the secondary goal of turning it into a local attraction.
At the same time, the Atlantic Ocean Road is considered one of the most dangerous roads in the world, mostly due to periodic storms during bad weather. The waves here can be so high, that they can easily wash a passing car out to sea.
