1 2

6. 9 de Julio Avenue

9 de Julio Avenue is in Argentina and was constructed when the country gained independence. It is widest in the world and stretches across six lanes. Landmarks like the Plaza de la República and the well known obelisk can be found on this street.

 

7. Lombard Street

This street in San Francisco is the most crooked in the world and is fantastic because it has unpredictable twists and turns. There are 8 turns, to be precise and were added to the street because without them, it would be too steep and sharp for cars and bikes. One particular section is only one way which was done to make this dangerous street slightly safer in the long run. Naturally, people are not allowed to park their vehicles here.

 

8. The Magic Roundabout

The Magic Roundabout is in England and is the world’s most confusing roundabout, making it the worst street in the world. It was constructed during the 1970s and is so massive that it encompasses about five tinier roundabouts. If you are traveling on the central portion, you have to follow the rules, that is, drive slowly in the anti-clockwise direction. This is very confusing for British drivers because they are not used to it.

 

9. Savoy Court

This street is in England as well and is the only one in the country which forces the drivers to move on the right side and not the left. Thankfully, it is legal even though it is perplexing.

 

10. Baldwin Street

This street in New Zealand is so sharp that it has earned itself the title of the steepest in the world. It was designed by those planners that did not think it necessary to visit the country and check out the location. They made the pattern by simply looking at the map and therefore, created the most impractical design they could have come up with.
