Back in the 80's I rode a motorcycle to the top of Pikes Peak and was surprised at the lack of guardrails.

Guardrails on those kinds of roads wouldn't necessarily keep you from getting killed if you hit them hard - like losing your brakes on a downhill.

After driving up Pikes Peak I bought a magnet in the gift shop that said “Real men don’t need guardrails”. They do tend to give you a little sense of security though. Driving down from Yosemite was a real nail biter in a class “A”. Quite different than driving a sports car!
