I found the picture below (@smilewanderer.wordpress.com) weeks back and is considered as one of the most dangerous roads. For me, the roads towards the higher Himalayas like the roads from Rishikesh to Badrinath, India are very scary and dangerous because the roads are winding, not properly done (not concreted or tarred...long stretch) then if one is not driving cautiously one could end up falling off the cliffs or bump into rocky sides of the mountains or be under mud or rocks once hit by landslides or rock falls (cloudburst). So I think these kind of roads are the most dangerous for me.

Indeed! And even more dangerous if we don't know anything about the place where we are going. It's always advisable to get acquainted (through reading about them) with the places we want to go before venturing into them!
Right! Others on the road could contribute to danger because we don't have control over their action-how slow or fast they go. Also, the manner of repairs (if roads get repaired).
Haven't seen nor heard of it, too. But what you're saying is equally dangerous! Frozen alive? Whew!
Exactly, DreamerMeg! In fact, around here in the hills there are timings at night for vehicles to be admitted to drive onward. After that particular time no one is allowed until next day morning.
I can imagine what you are saying. Travelling at night, too, makes it more dangerous. One less quick maneuver and well, bus might just fall somewhere down another hill or perhaps river.
