Kaiser Pass: one-lane road with no guard rails from CA 168 to Florence Lake in the middle of the night. Only going back did we realize that there were huge drops, but they made for great views.

I just came closer to my ultimate conclusion that not only is Forbes the worst magazine in the world, but their online material if far and away the most infurigaingly unsurfable website on earth

They list WV 16, betweeen Middlebourne and Grundy. Middlebourne is about 20 miles off route 16, and mapquest cannot find any Grundy in West Virginia at all.

I've been on about half of those roads, and as far as I know theyre just roads. I drove US50 in Nevada at night in a severe thunderstorm. It's just a road.

Does Forbes have any proofreaders or editors at all, or can just anybody submit a goofy top ten list and they publish it, no questions asked?

Highway 50 is not scary. Lonely yes, but not scary.

They were remiss in not including the highway between Silverton and Durango, Colorado. It is abominable.

Most Dangerous Intersections

I don't even have to click on that link to know Red Lion and the Boulevard is on there. Although, I think it's more dangerous for the pedestrians crossing the street than for the drivers making turns.

I've driven coastal 1 in California several times. It's very intense because there are no guard rails at the edge and there is little room for error if on coming traffic swerves in your direction. The road on Mt. Washington in NH was scary too.

The deadliest roads aren't always roads that are dangerous to drive on. Queens Blvd here in NYC is one of the most dangerous roads in the country to cross on foot. There are 2 express lanes and 2 local lanes. I always get nervous crossing this street. There have been so many deaths of people crossing this street, it's scary. It's really like a highway.
