Would You Dare Cross This Dangerous Highway In France? Many Try, Few Succeed.

When driving to and from work, most people wonder "will there be bad traffic?" If you happen to be one of the lucky commuters who has to drive on the Passage du Grois that runs between the Gulf of Burn and the island of Noirmoutier in France, you'd wonder "will there be a road?" This roadway is infamous for being the victim of the changing tides. At low tide, which only happens for a short period every day, the water is just low enough for people to safely pass on the road.

I don't know about you, but if my road back home is under water for the majority of the day, I'd invest in a boat (or perhaps submersible vehicle).

A few cyclists cross the Passage du Grois. The sun is shining and the road (for now) is above water.

At least there are some handy signs to warn you in case you miss the road disappearing right in front of you.
