Highway of Death



A term that refers to a stretch of road on which there have been so many accidents and fatalities that they end up being attributed to a curse or other paranormal affliction.

One of the best recorded examples concerns the construction of a new motorway section in Germany in 1930. The section was a completely straight area of flat roadwa, on the side of which was a small stone kilometer marker known as kilometer marker 239. During the first 12 months of the roadway's existence over 100 cars crashed on the carriageway near the jinxed marker.

On one very clear dry day in September 1930 a total of 9 separate cars left the road right next to the accursed marker. It was only after the stone marker had been completely removed from the ground and the area sprinkled with holy water that the accidents stop.
