What are the dangers with Rural Roads ?
Rural Roads are often narrow, winding, and slippery. Often you can find large transportation vehicles heading towards you filling the full width of their side of the road which only leaves you a small amount of manoeuvrability on your side of the road. This can create a near miss feeling or a moment of holding your breath.
Country roads can often be designed with near 90 degree sharp left bends or long sweeping blind left bends which leave you in anticipation of what could be on the road ahead.
At night time the road is often only illuminated by the lights of your vehicle and the oncoming drivers which can sometimes dazzle you.
Add rain into the mix and you can have your tires struggling for grip if the road surface is covered in mud which has come from the surrounding fields.
