We’ve all heard of Lombard Street in San Francisco where cars line up to zig-zag down one of the most famous streets in America, but to take the concept of ridiculous roads even further, Britain’s Daily Mail just announced their pick for the World’s Craziest Road, which turns out to be a stretch of beach in Queensland, Australia!  Certainly looks a little more exotic than your average commute, which got us wondering about what some of the wildest roads around the world might look like?

To put your morning commute in perspective—here’s a quick spin around 5 of the world’s wackiest and weirdest roads. Drive safely!
