Ok I will admit after reading a number of the reviews the drive had me a little nervous. In hindsight there was no reason to be. The road is plenty wide enough all the way up for two cars and or the auto road vans. There were a couple of spots where I was well aware I was feet from the edge but never to the point where I was nervous...I think driving my own car where I was comfortable with the handling was a big plus there.
The only annoying think on the way up, the auto rode vans/stage stop on some of the curves...that is annoying as you are stuck behind one.
We pulled off a few times just to enjoy the views and take photos. Once at the top it is was about 20 degrees cooler and the views were incredible. It was an experience to be standing above and among the clouds.
The day were were there clouds were sporadically passing around the summit so at one moment you were in cloud cover and a couple of minutes later in the sun watching the clouds move past you!
Don't be afraid of the drive, the follow the directions and be safe. If the reference is helpful, the roads between Naples and Positano in Italy are far worse as are some of the roads going through the gorges in AZ.
