Final Technical Report

In 2008, more than 27 percent of fatal crashes occurred at horizontal curves. Due to the predominance of horizontal curves on typical rural roads, a higher percentage of fatal curve-related crashes occur on rural roads, particularly on two-lane roadways in rural areas; fatality rates on rural roads are typically more than twice the rate than on urban roads. Of all fatal crashes that occur on two-lane rural highways, about 20% are head on collisions with passing being the main cause of this type of crash. Read More
