    What are Europe’s most dangerous roads?


    There is no doubt that Europe offers some outstanding drives. Whether it’s haring round the Autobahn in Germany, tackling the mountains in Switzerland or sitting in traffic on the M25, there is something for everyone. However, there is also no doubt that some stretches of tarmac on this continent are fraught with danger and the threat of a serious accident on the road is never far away.

    Which European roads are likely to have lots of road traffic accidents?

    What follows is a list of the worst offenders in terms of dangerous places to drive in Europe. Motorists around these parts need to be on high alert at all times to avoid car accidents, motorcycle collisions and other crashes on the road.

    • Stelvio Pass, Italy
      Aerial shots of this stretch reveal a stunning, winding, snake of a road complete with 48 sharp turns. Steering and cornering has to be 100 per cent correct in order to avoid an accident on the road. Though BBC’s Top Gear named it ‘the greatest driving road in the world,’ even Jeremy Clarkson et al would confess this mind-bending series of turns in the Eastern Alps must be treated with respect.
    • Siberian Road, Russia
      This perilous stretch, connecting Moscow to Yakutsk, is only a ‘road’ in the loosest possible sense of the word. There is no asphalt surface and monsoon conditions can cause chaos very quickly as it soon becomes more of a waterway. Heavy winter winds also severely impact visibility, causing any number of accidents on the road.
    • Trollstigen, Norway
      Translated as the Troll Ladder, this mountain road in Ruama includes eleven hairpin bends and an incline of 9%. It is simply too dangerous for vehicles over 12.4 metres in length to drive and, whilst the views from the top are breath-taking, getting there requires a great amount of concentration and a lot of skill.
    • Patiopoula– Perdikaki, Greece
      A steep climb or descent, depending on which way you’’re travelling, this particular road is, quite simply, a traffic accident waiting to happen. The dirt track offers little grip whilst the enormous pot-holes, sheer drops on each side and absence of guard rails are a recipe for catastrophe.

    If you are injured in a road accident, remember that help is at hand. As a law firm with over 15 year’s’ experience in injury claims, our legal team at Accident Advice Helpline know just how to get you the accident compensation you deserve.
