Rural Driving: Tips for Staying Safe on the Road

 

Rural Driving (continued)

 

Of the many things to look out for on rural roadways, the most widespread dangers are animals. Animals, including livestock and deer, are unpredictable. Deer are especially quick and jump out unexpectedly. Hitting large animals tears up your vehicle, and can kill you.

You also need to be careful to look for people on rural roads. There are no sidewalks so people commonly walk on these roads. If you see animals or people ahead of you, reduce your speed and get ready to predict their actions.
