Rural Verses City Driving - Defensive Driving


Rural Verses City Driving


Many rural roads have dirt shoulders, or no shoulders at all, which leaves no room for error. Narrow roads limit your ability to evade oncoming hazards. Rural drivers’ who become over confident of familiar roadway tend to speed, and use careless driving techniques. Increased speed causes drivers use the entire roadway when making curves, rather than keeping to their own side of the lane.

At the same time, travelers and sight-seers enjoy driving country roads. These drivers are usually unaware of the many curves, speeding pick-up trucks, and obstacles on a rural road. With no shoulders to prevent collision, all drivers must follow the speed limits and stay in their own lane to avoid a serious head on collision.
