According to TRIP, a National Transportation Research Group, South Carolina has the highest rate of rural road fatalities in the U.S. WLOS ABC News Channel 13, recently reported on the data, that found 10 percent of North Carolina’s rural roads are in poor condition. Additionally, the state also comes in at 16th in the U.S. for poor bridge construction. A variety of different variables were assessed in their report titled, “Rural Connections: Challenges and Opportunities in America’s Heartland.” Safety advocated aren’t happy about the news, but they’re hoping that with recommended strategies, safety on rural roads in North Carolina can improve for motorists and roadway users.

The TRIP report found that 15 percent of rural roads across the nation are in poor condition. Less than half were found to be in good condition, with many falling into the mediocre and fair condition categories. Additionally 10 percent of bridges on U.S. rural roads were found to be structurally deficient. Another disturbing finding from the report was that traffic crashes and fatalities on rural non-interstate roads were reported at a disproportionately high rate. Their fatality rates were two-and-a-half times higher than on other roadways.
