Over the past few months, posts have been circulating the interwebs about the “most scenic” as well as “most terrifying” bridges to drive in the United States. One of which, the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge (a.k.a. Oregon Inlet Bridge), was posted in a scenic article and I was shocked to see all the people commenting that they were scared speechless driving over the beautiful, landscape-sweeping structure. I personally find it one of the most picturesque bits of driving in the country, so I was determined to start a “shock and awe” campaign to enlighten the good people of Earth (namely those that follow our OBX blog) about truly terrifying feats of human engineering that put any fear you may have, into large, enormous perspective.
