    Some of these can only be described as journeys into hell (or the unknown).

    They didnt list some of the highways in the 3rd world countries that can only be described as a free-for-all. I could name a couple of roads in Indonesia that scared the crap out of me (literally).

    The Bolivian road of death is an experience you will never forget. It makes my sphincter tingle just thinking about it. That road is a pucker factor of 11. I was in a deuce and a half for my trek on it.

    Yeah looks wild. I would also say there are some appalling roads in Africa that I've been on (although most of it is down to the drivers)...

    Agreed, most of it is on the drivers. Some of those people drive like it's their last day on earth. In some cases, it is.

    A few years ago I was at my pre-wife's place in northeast philly. I used to complain about how bad the roads were in that area. One night we were watching TV and 48 Hours or something like that had AAA list their worst intersections in America. #2 and #3 were two blocks away from us! I hooted like an a** about that ...."See, I told you!!" :lol:


    I suffered for months.
