I don't know about the whole USA, but here in the Detroit area, US 24 (Telegraph Road) used to be known as "Bloody Telegraph" years ago. Mostly the result of street racing rather than road topography...it's basically a straight shot from the northern Detroit suburbs down halfway to Toledo, Ohio. No "Deadman's Curves"  Smile Regards...Jack

Any where in South Africa.

Generally the n3 highway to durban from johannesburg, or any where, the Taxi's work. I dont mean new york yellow taxi.

In one long weekend in south africa, more people die on her roads than in an entire year in australia from what I hear.

Why, cause the people with our licenses, or who have bought them, or with our roadworthy vehicles, are the ones who never obey the basic traffic laws such as speed limits etc.

In Spain, the most dangerous road is the CN620 between Salamanca and the Portuguese border. It´s a long straight road with lots of speeding and people falling asleep behind the steering wheel (especially truck drivers).

I do not know about the entire U.S, but highway 2 north of Kalispell, Montana, is the scariest road I've been on (I drove a 90 mile stretch on it several times a week for a year) and evidently, it was quite dangerous as well, since the number of white crosses almost matched up with the amount of fence poles.
