How safe are Oklahoma's rural roads?

A recent report on rural roads in America issued by the organization TRIP raises some serious questions when it comes to some important matters regarding rural roads here in Oklahoma.

One such matter is how safe rural roads are in the state. There are a couple of alarming things the report found when it comes to the fatality rate on rural roads here in Oklahoma. For one, it found that this rate was nearly three times larger than the fatality rate for other roads in the state. It also found that, when compared with other states, Oklahoma's rural road fatality rate was the 10th highest in the nation.

What do you think is responsible for the high fatality rate on Oklahoma's rural roads?

Another thing the report calls into serious question when it comes to Oklahoma's rural roads is how good of condition these roads are in. The report found that Oklahoma, when compared to the rest of the nation, ranked 5th worst when it came to structurally deficient rural bridges and 7th worst when it came to rural pavement in poor condition.  

Do you think that rural roads here in Oklahoma are, by and large, in pretty bad shape condition-wise? Do you think the condition of the state's rural roads are playing a role in the high rural road fatality rate in the state?

Just as rural roads can sometimes have different sorts of safety concerns than urban roads, cases involving accidents on rural roles can sometimes involve different sorts of issues than cases involving accidents on urban roads. Attorneys can help rural road accident victims here in Oklahoma with the legal matters that come up in connection to their accident.
