A new interactive map, by British company Driving Experiences, has named the Bruce Highway among the 22 of the world’s most deadly highways.
The road’s “fear factor” was rated four out of 10.
In an average year, Bruce Highway accounts for 17 percent of the national highway deaths in Australia. It is important to note, however, that the high percentage has a lot to do with the length of the road, which winds for more than 1,500 kilometres.
The factors that contribute to the danger of the Bruce Hwy were illegal and dangerous overtaking and the road’s length.
