According to today’s Yahoo Travel section, Saddle Road on the Big Island is one of the scariest drives in America.
While it is a pretty bad road… I’ve driven on much worse that didn’t even make the list:
The Big Island’s incredible Saddle Road shoots between two hulking volcanoes across a sweltering lava-rock desert. “Famously bad and dangerous” is how one guide describes Hawaii Route 200 between Hilo and Waimea. Although improved in recent years, much of the route is narrow and one-way; intermittent fog makes it even more hazardous. Side roads lead to the summits of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa.
I wonder if this was before or after the recent Saddle Road Improvement projects?
Then again… when you see people flying over saddle road like this idiot… you can understand why it could be so scary!
