Rural Driving (continued)

According to the University of Minnesota,

  • Three-quarters of the public roadway mileage in the United States—more than 3 million miles of roads—is considered rural.
  • One-fifth of U.S. population lives in rural areas, yet two-fifths of the vehicle miles traveled and three-fifths of the 42,000 fatal crashes each year occur on rural roads.
  • Crash victims are five to seven times more likely to die if arrival to a hospital exceeds 30 minutes. The time between a crash and arrival at a hospital averages 34 minutes in urban areas and 52 minutes in rural areas.
