Chesapeake Bay Bridge, Maryland
This bridge, almost five miles long, is so scary that some drivers, too afraid to make the journey themselves, will pay $25 to have a stranger drive their car across it. It's no wonder they're so terrified—in recent months, a car has gone over the guardrail, plunging about 40 feet into the water below; a bridge fire has snarled traffic for hours; and winds of almost 40 miles per hour have caused a 10-mile backup. Even on good days, the bridge's design makes the drive quite frightening for many travelers, who must drive around a curve, up a steep incline, and downhill before making it safely across.
