High traffic congestion, rural roads and fatal crashes

It is important to keep in mind that while urban areas with high traffic congestion may see a large number of motor vehicle accidents, accidents that occur in these locations are not necessarily more likely to result in fatalities or serious injuries. Sadly, some areas which do not see nearly as much traffic may have actually had quite a few deadly accidents take place. If you drive in either of the two areas, it is important to be aware of the different risks you face every time you get behind the wheel.

Although rural roads may not see traffic jams and heavy congestion like their urban counterparts, they can still be incredibly dangerous. Many of the accidents that occur while traffic is congested involve drivers who are traveling at relatively low speeds. In areas where there is no traffic congestion, drivers may be traveling much faster. Therefore, when they collide the outcome can be far worse, in some instances. During the nighttime hours, roads can be especially dangerous for a host of reasons, such as a higher prevalence of drunk driving and decreased visibility.

Whether you find yourself stuck in traffic in an urban location or you regularly drive on rural roads, it is vital to be aware of the risks you face when you drive. Motor vehicle accidents have a wide variety of causes and they turn lives upside down in many ways. For those who are struck by a reckless driver, exploring the legal options that may be available is a wise decision.
