Cumbres de Acultzingo

Cumbres de Acultzingo, recommended for drivers with strong nerves

Cumbres de Acultzingo is the name of a very dangerous road located in the state of Veracruz, in Mexico.

Set high in the Sierra Madre Oriental range, the road is totally paved. It’s called Ruta 150 (Tehuacan-Orizaba road). It’s said to be the most dangerous highway in Veracruz state.

The road features sharp curves and steep slopes. It’s also very dangerous because of how confusing its signage can be. A moment of distraction behind the wheel could be fatal. The driver must be very careful, since the tighter the curve, the less visibility ahead, so the lane must be changed shortly before starting the line. If you are confused, it can be very dangerous. Forbidden to be distracted.

The peculiar line of the arrows indicating the lane change was made so that the longer trucks can make their line in a single movement. This prevents them from getting stuck in a blind spot on the road. It also prevents transports that carry a lot of cargo from leaving the section and causing a serious accident.
