Whether its a road built in the middle of the sea or scary single lane pass, this cool video from ComparetheMarket.com showcases one of the most incredible yet also dangerous roads in the world.

While some roads and bridges are the product of well-thought out engineering, others are just a make-shift solution, often dangerously so, to move from one area to another.

Not for the fainthearted

Probably the most dangerous example out of the bunch has to be the Yungas Road in Bolivia. Even though the road is only able to accommodate a single car, people make their way across at the same time. With rugged rocks on the one side and a stomach-curdling drop on the other, it has claimed countless lives.

Some of these roads like the Tianmen Mountain pass in China offer some crazy hairpin bends and would leave the likes of Ken Block and Keiichi Tsuchiya licking their lips.
