After implementing new policies surrounding manipulated media on its platform earlier this month, Twitter is now reportedly testing labels for misinformation from public figures…
Nanga Parbat Pass, North Yungas, the Trans-Siberian Highway: these are road names etched into motoring lore. Unlike many of the great roads however, they’re not renowned for their epic vistas or spectacular corners. No, what they’re known for is the fact that anyone traveling along them is taking one of the biggest risks you can on four wheels.
Compiled using data from multiple sources, including country death tolls from the World Health Organisation, this interactive map shows just how deadly some of the world’s most dangerous roads are.
North Yungas, also known as the “Road of Death”, in Bolivia is believed to be the world’s most dangerous road and hazards include cars traveling in both directions in both lanes, narrow and uneven tracks and unprotected sheer drops of up to a 1 000 metres.
Following shortly behind is the Nanga Parbat Pass in Pakistan, which climbs upward from the base on Nanga Parbat, the world’s ninth tallest mountain. If you reckon you could last the most dangerous stretch — which features a narrow, unpaved track with no barriers to stop you falling over the side, you’re a hell of a lot braver than any of us.
