How confident do you feel behind the wheel? No matter how expert a driver you might be, there might be one road, trail or highway out there that gives you the cold sweats just looking at it... and we've found a shitload of them, thanks to a site that points out the most dangerous, deadly and downright horrifying places to drive in the entire world.

Driving Experiences provides an interactive map to the most hazardous roads from all points of the globe, providing images, statistics and other info on each location – including the “Road Fear Factor” and number of fatalities recorded on each. I'd like to point out that some of those death numbers are just insanely huge... I'm talking tens of thousands of travelers killed.
The most nightmare-inducing examples include Bolivia's North Yungas Road, nicknamed “The Road of Death,” Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City, Philippines, known as the “Killer Highway,” and Brazil's BR-116, the “Highway of Death.” (Seeing a pattern here?) But it's China's Guoliang Tunnel Road (shown below), ominously known as “The Road of No Mistakes,” currently holds the record death toll on this list at 65,225 fatalities annually. Just let that number sink in for a second. 65,225 died navigating this road... in a single year.
