What do you think is the most dangerous stretch of road in the United States? Are there any routes you try to avoid?
Statistically, these are some of the most dangerous roads in America by the NHTSA.
I-5 and the Grapevine
There are some roads in WV trucks have to travel that are worse.
The entrance to Walmart when the welfare checks come in…..
I 70 can get pretty hairy in the winter
How bout any road with an Amish buggy on it?
Devils playground south out of lewiston idaho..
Those are all in the west! Try US 60 across Wva, or the old US 21, US 23 eastern KY, US 25E KY- TN, Old US 40 Pa – MD.
70 west of denver hoing through eisenhower tunnel many of accidents fromm over confident drivers look at photos in east bound scale
I saw someone put Monteagle, and I put the Grapevine with it. If you use your head and only have half your brakes you can do both of these without a hiccup. I have seen some others I know nothing about but they sound like number one,two and three. We did the Colorado shortcut/scenic route once and ended up loosing a brake drum. So yea, 15 mph switchbacks are reason to be number one.
The Dan Ryan in Chicago
The spaghetti bowl in Las Vegas
West side of Eisenhower tunnel on I 70 in Colorado is worse than cabbage.
How about Alaska’s Dalton Highway?
How about any road with a 4 wheeler on it, that’s what you really gotta worry about
Rockies…… Donners pass are 2 more!
Let’s just say if you have never been down 52 south in Nc The old fancy gap you should had try it . So bad they will not let you any more .
The grapevine is not that bad if you drive it right. Not many drivers now a days know the right way. They hang out in the second lane when they should move over, sometimes making other trucks thrid lane it. My father use to drive the old grapevine with a double browning one arm through the steering wheel. OLD SCHOOL DRIVERS……they just don’t make them anymore!
4th of july and look out in the winter time
That Is 5 mile. Grapevine is on the North of the pass. Grapevine run though Grapevine Canyon
Grape vine is not dangerous, i would drive it 4 times a day driving oil fracking equipment.
been on that grapevine….in a big truck!! Been on a bunch of scary roads in a big truck!!
The road from my house to work is the worst road I have ever been on. lol
U.S. 550 between Ouray CO and Durango CO. 3 passes over 10,000, multiple 15 mph tight switchbacks, lots of falling rock and debris and, throw in about 300 to 400 inches of snow in winter with multiple avalanches. I have been in every state including AK.. It is the worst in the nation for a highway.
Only as Dangerous as the people that drive on them.i never knew blacktop and cement moved!
Don’t think it’s the most dangerous, but the Pigeon River Gorge, I 40 in NC has he most scared drivers.
Rollercoster in canada ,wv 68,us7from arkansas ti missouri,
Utah 20 nasty little 20 miles or so in winter
U.S.6 (Loveland Pass) in Colorado, and the Cabbage Patch on I-84 near Pendelton, Oregon.
have always been the two roads that I have always dreaded to travel in the winter months.
Garfield, If you would quit because of I -81 in MTN.Top PA, you have never been to the North West.They have BIG mountains out there that would make Mtn.top, PA look like a ant hill.
this topic is just like the gun topic, theses roads dont move, speed, change directions, cross over drastically. guns dont kill people bullets kill people, roads dont kill people or injure, people driving them are the ones that are dangerous
US50 from MD through WV to the interstate… makes the tail of the dragon the tail of the pussycat. Loveland pass is a butt clencher in the weather took an oversize through there in ice n wind all I could do is rebel yell and laugh manically…
I never thought Grapevine or Cabbage were that big of a deal, compared to ( I’m not sure how to spell it, so I’m going to try phonetically) Cowee, on US441 between Dillsboro and Franklin, NC.
I-77 “the gap” in VA. Fog, and wind not to mention ice or snow in the winter.
I’d say state highway 46 in California. The same road James Dean died on.
The I-80 in Iowa. Ne and Wy in any winter months. The no salt rules to save the animals, leaves dirt to scatter over the interstate but it isn’t done often enough.
Oh yea! Transmountin in El Paso, Tx……..
have to say Donners Pass.
Wouldn’t be near as dangerous if they kept the idiot bicyclist off the road and everyone paid attention to driving.
Loveland pass in Colorado has had me picking pieces of the seat out of my ass a few times, 11.300 some feet of elevation and a 2 lane goat track is the alternate route for trucks to tall for the tunnel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loveland_Pass
Trans Labrador Highway from Baie Comeau Qc to Labrador City
Never been on that one..LOL!….Did most of my Canadian driving in Quebec…for Alcoa and other steel/aluminum Plants….
81 in mountain top pa I told my dm I will quit before I ever drive up there again.
Yes on that! I live in Pa. and I hate driving that state, especially in the winter! 80 sucks and the Turn Pike is half decent but it is only two lanes and curves and hills….LOL!
Done them all, in the winter no less……and as a SWIFT driver! 20 years later (no longer with SWIFT, LOL), I still hate US 129. But I will say, I have been on some roads in Kentucky that were just as challenging…..Colorado US 50 in the winter is fun as is Utah..
You don’t like the dragon? That’s funny, swift drivers are hated on the dragon too! I can’t believe trucks are even allowed on that road!
Were talking 94, 95, last time I was on it……So it might be restricted now for all I know…..I prefer to stay between Chicago, Detroit. , Cleveland Buffalo, Baltimore myself. With occasional excursions south….I am lazy, just want to do the steel/aluminum manufacturing plants and the Automakers….no more ports for me!! ..LOL!
@[1443060080:2048:Joshua Kush] SWIFT drivers were hated pretty much everywhere at that time! there trucks were governed at 57 mph. They really hated us in Arizona when the speed limit was 70 plus out there…However, I did two years at SWIFT driving flatbed and made good money, never had a slow down. Only reason I left, I got tired of driving 57mph….
So you remember when they banned us (ex-Swift driver here! 93-95 1/2) between Lewiston & Fruitland? SWIFT drivers kept flipping king kong toilet paper rolls out there, pissed me off, I loved that drive!
