More than half of our nation’s traffic deaths occur on rural roads, even though only 1/4th of us live in rural areas.
Your best protection when driving on country roads include:
– Watching for Critters
– Watching for slow-moving vehicles- not just on the road but on
the side of the road.
– Watch for snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles in the
shoulders and ditches for potential roadway crossers.
– Avoid head-on collisions, which are most prevalent on two-
lane roadways. Watch for oncoming vehicles and be prepared
to take the ditch.
