Best Off-Roading: E. Madison Street

With a long track record of potholes, sinkholes, bumps, cracks, and tumbleweeds of litter, Baltimore’s streets have rightfully earned a reputation for being terrible. E. Madison Street, all the way from east of Johns Hopkins Hospital to the jail complex, set a new gold standard for awful driving. Seemingly always being worked on by repair crews—hey, at least someone is trying—E. Madison causes enough thuds, booms, and whacks to make drivers cringe with fear at the thought of what’s happening to their poor suspensions. God help you if you try to navigate this street in anything other than a 4x4.
