Welsh town claims it has world’s steepest street

National News

(CNN) – You may think you’ve driven some steep streets in San Francisco or maybe Colorado. But they get worse – way worse.

Check out what Guinness now says is the steepest road in the entire world.

This street in Harlech, Wales has a gradient of 37.45%.

That’s a rise of one foot for every 2.67 feet you travel.

One resident says her car slid down the road with all four tires locked.

A street party to celebrate the designation is planned for the end of this month.

Let’s hope everybody is able to keep their footing!

The previous record holder for steepest street is in Dunedin, New Zealand.
