10 Dangerous Roads That Are Scarier Than Roller Coasters

Without roads and bridges, traveling around in our cars and trucks would be a lot more difficult. Smooth paved highways, gentle curves, and gradual grades are the sort of things that make driving relatively painless, at least in most areas of the world. Then there are the following stretches of road. Resembling more of a ride you’d find in a theme park, some of the world’s dangerous roads and bridges are just plain ridiculous. We can’t believe people still drive on them. Here are 10 dangerous roads that are scarier than roller coasters.

10: Eshima Ohashi Bridge, Japan

Eshima Ohashi Bridge, Japan

Most people like their bridges to be relatively straight with minimal twists and very low grades. Whoever built the Eshima Ohashi Bridge in Japan, clearly did not get this memo. Spanning Lake Nakaumi, this bridge has a 6.1% grade to give it the height needed to clear shipping. The added curves and twists are seemingly just there to complete the whole roller coaster experience. However, don’t get too worked up. Photos tend to make this thing look far worse than it actually is. That said, we still think it takes a brave person to cross this rather intimidating Route.

9: Trollstigen, Norway

Trollstigen, Norway

Literally meaning the troll’s path, this short little bit a roadway in Norway sure looks intimidating. Sure, it’s not as long as some other dangerous roads we’ll get to in a minute, but don’t let that fool you. Situated in the Picturesque Mountains, be sure to keep your eyes on the road. Otherwise, you’ll never negotiate the 10% incline and 11 hairpin turns. Throw in some rock falls, narrow stretches and unpredictable weather. The Trollstigen makes those roller coasters at your nearby park look pretty tame.
