THE CHALLENGE

According to the Department Of Transportation, the majority of highway fatalities take place on rural roads. The fatality rate in rural areas is 2.4 times higher than the fatality rate in urban areas.

 
 

Rural Hazards

Amish buggies, farm equipment, school buses, bicycles, pedestrians, snow plows, Post Office vehicles – virtually any object that travels at 25 mph or less.

 

Perilous Roads

Narrow two lane country roads, roads with no shoulders, winding and blind corners, rolling hills.

 

Limited Reaction

At a 50 mile per hour difference, you will gain 73 feet every second on a slow moving object...an entire football field in just over four seconds.
