“Road of Death” - Bolivia
North Yungas Road is hands-down the most dangerous in the world for motorists. This one clearly endangers your life. It runs in the Bolivian Andes, 70 km from La Paz to Coroico, and plunges down almost 3,600 meters in an orgy of extremely narrow hairpin curves and 800-meter abyss near-misses. A fatal accident happens there every couple of weeks, 100-200 people perish there every year. In 1995 the Inter-American Development Bank named the La Paz-to-Coroico route “the world’s most dangerous road.”


Guoliang Tunnel in Taihang mountains (China)

The wall of the tunnel is uneven and there are more than 30 “windows” of
different sizes and shapes. Some windows are round and some are square, and they range from dozens of metres long to standard-window-size. It is frightening to look down from the windows, where strange rocks hanging form the sheer cliff above and a seemingly bottomless pit lying below. A village, opposite the tunnel, appears to hang on the precipice.

Russian Siberian Road to Yakutsk

The official federal-government highway to Yakutsk, and it is also the only one to get there. This can turn into a major humanitarian disaster during rainy spells, when the usual clay covering of the road turns into impassable mud blanket, swallowing trucks and tractors alike.
Here is an aerial shot of this road in winter:
There are also rumors of a quite normal 30 km stretch of Russian country road, which gets an unexplained amount of car accidents; the locals suspect underground gas seepage which causes motorists to fall asleep... This creepy tale is supported by the evidence of car crash statistics and the tales of survivors, who do not remember anything prior to the crash and act strangely "drugged" afterwards. Hopefully this will be properly investigated before the road claims more victims.

A typical India-Nepal Road. There is also a "death road" in Bangladesh, but we don't have enough information.

these roads are sure to lead to accidents, At the time of the road accidents a person is dazed and obviously not thinking straight. However, decisions made at this critical moment can determine the outcome of major damage issues in the future. It would be a good idea for everyone to keep a checklist in their glove compartment in the event an unfortunate road accidents occurs. Once the emergency calls have been made what should a car accident victim do during these critical moments. As you are sitting there and waiting on the medical teams and police, what comments are critical and what information is going to be pertinent in the future.

The natural concern is to be concerned about the physical well-being of everyone involved in the car accident and that is very important. However, if you have suffered a injury, remember everything you say or do could affect your ability to recover a fair settlement or judgment in the future
