751 Rural Road Safety: How to Reduce Accidents for Rural Road Users
Some estimates are that rural roads have a 3 times higher accident rate than all other roads. Recently Map-21 eliminated the High Risk Rural Road program in an effort to streamline
funding and may eliminate Federal dollars being targeted to the rural road system. The problem will only be getting worse. The changing demographics that characterizes the urban/rural interface has not been well researched and not the result is it is not well planned. A collective approach will be needed to reduce accidents on rural roads and that educating drivers who drive on them, farmers to
non-residence, will be the key to further reductions.
