The most dangerous roads in the world

After my fearful rant about Himalayan North India’s road, the World Health Organisation has published a report on the world’s most dangerous roads.

My sincere apologies go out to India because it doesn’t feature in the top few; Africa has the monopoly. Incidentally, the Marshall Islands have the safest roads in the world.

Starting with the most hazardous, the top 10 most dangerous roads to drive on in the world are:

1. Eritrea
2. Cook Islands
3.  Egypt
4. Libya
5. Afghanistan
6. Iraq
7. Niger
8. Angola
9. United Arab Emirates
10. Gambia

North Indian roads may be crazy but it appears that the drivers are pretty good.
