15. Luxor-al-Hurghada Road—Egypt
The 180-mile route from Egypt’s Red Sea diving resort of Hurghada to the Nile-side city of Luxor doesn’t look treacherous at all. In fact, the modern highway runs pretty straight across the flat, wide-open terrain. But topography’s not the challenge here. At night, bandits and terrorists are known to prey upon defenseless motorists, reportedly prompting those unlucky enough to be caught out after sunset to speed across the pitch-black desert with their headlights turned off. Collisions, as you can imagine, are common.
