Whether it is far from a bum?the Small street the Psychopath (Psycho Path - literally: “ path of loonies “) in the State of Michigan it is awarded a doubtful prize for the most mad topographical name of America.

Owners of private roads in the United States have the right to register the drives under any name. And Psycho Paths combination, most likely, comes to their mind rather often: according to the site editor Martie Padzhett, this name met during a competition several times.
Among the names which drew special attention of organizers of a competition, - such which cause a smile not everyone, and in a combination with each other. So, in Georgia are crossed Odinochestva Road and Heavy Need.

“ If to consider vital signs of an organism, then you, most likely, do not want to turn on the street Far - from - bums, - the local smiles. - But we were told that it is the only road on which it is possible to pass to the ridge of Locks in Arkansas “.
All names sent to a competition were checked according to cards so any of them is not invented including the road with a terrible name of the Shadow of Death, and unpronounceable Zzikss Street.
