Documentary research-Nairobi River Road or others

****Researching a possible documentary on the world's most dangerous roads*****

Hi! I am researching a possible documentary on the world's most dangerous roads. Does anyone know anything about Nairobi's River Road? Is it dangerous? What does it look like? We are looking for roads that are dangerous more for the topography than just because of the crazy drivers. For example, one that we have filmed already is the infamous La Paz Road in Bolivia. So, we aren't necessarily looking for your typical modern, paved, four-lane highway. We want roads that are adventurous to drive with great visuals--cliffs, twists, turns, etc. We'd also like these roads to have a rich history behind them as well. Any insight would be most appreciated! Thanks!

River Road is no more dangerous to drive along than any other road in Nairobi. They are all quite exciting with traffic (usually matatus) carving each other up. The Dangerous part of river road is as a pedestrian and especially at night. It is notorious for the muggers and hawkers who frequent it. It is definitely not the place for a naive tourist or film crew (if you fancy keeping your cameras)
