Assessment of Country Roads/ Urban Highways
Statistics have proven that a higher rate of individuals die on rural country roads than on urban highways. States are increasing their efforts to condense deaths caused by rural roads to defy a reality of highway regulations and security. A survey taken by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2008 shows that 56% of U.S. traffic related deaths occurred on a rural road. In America, 23% of the population resides in rural areas on and around country roads.
