Dangerous Roads Around The World

• Shoulder - A clear, level area beside the driving lane(s). It helps support the roadway, helps drain the pavement, provides room for bicyclists and, in areas without sidewalks, pedestrians, allows disabled to get out of the road; a hard shoulder is paved, a soft shoulder is unpaved.
• State highway - Road numbered by the state, falling below numbered national highways (like U.S. Routes) in the hierarchy or a road maintained by the state, including nationally-numbered highways
• Texture (roads) - Deviations from a true planar pavement surface, which affects the interaction between road and tire. Microtexture have wavelengths below 0.5 mm, Macrotexture below 50 mm and Megatexture below 500 mm.
• Traffic calming - Set of strategies used by urban planners and traffic engineers which aim to slow down or reduce traffic, thereby improving safety for pedestrians and bicyclists as well as improving the environment for residents
