Many drivers are far more relaxed traveling down a backroad than on busy highways like the Thruway, Route 84 and 17K, but did you know rural roads are actually more dangerous than urban roads?
Speed plays a significant role in rural road crashes, in fact more than 70% of crash deaths in 2015 occurred on roads with speed limits higher than 55mph*. Do you have a friend or loved one who tends to speed on country roads? Please share this post with them, and always remember to put safety first.
