    Real scary photo's,

    Ive driven on the LA Interchange and of course Spaghetti Junction and they arent any where near as bad as the photos' make them out to be. I wouldnt like to try some of the others.

    I may not have driven through LA had I seen the photo's first :Eek!:

    Hi

    Done the Bagio - Bontoc road on my Harley and it scared the hell out of me. I have to say that most roads are scary there tho, either from traffic or the road conditions.

    I see 17) Van Zyl’s Pass uses the same tarmac contractor as my local council :BigGrin:.

    The most dangerous major road in the UK was recently judged to be the A537 Macclesfield - Buxton (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10454356), which I took a quick trip along last Sunday to get the leisure battery charged up while at Knutsford. Didn't seem too bad, and looks a bit pathetic in comparison to this lot.

    Maybe not as dramatic/dangerous as some of the others in the link but its my all time favourite road.
    center of pic and half way up the mountain, you can make out the road.

    Chapmans peak

    i drove this road almost every day for 7 weeks while holidaying in capetown and was just as impressed the last time as i was the first......a drivers road :thumb:

    If you don't try, you'll never know.

    BTW, has anyone spotted the mistake in Number 1.....?

    A sweety I found down the back of the sofa for the first correct answer

    Hope to go to Norway in the RV sometime when we retire and I would love to do the Trollstigen (no.14) wife's not keen but I think she will go for it.
