15 Most Dangerous Roads in the World


9. The Trans-Siberian Highway, Russia

Stretching almost 7,000 miles from St Petersburg to Vladivostok, the Trans-Siberian Highway – much of which was built by gulag inmates – varies from pristine motorway in the west to dirt track in the east. For most of the year, conditions are excellent (if a little cold), but during the warm, wet summers, sections of the road have been transformed into an impassable quagmire.
