Arizonian rural road fatalities rank number eight as the Nation’s most dangerous roads. Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) works to improve its rural roads.
Amongst human factors such as, driver impairment, distractions and speeding, unexpected and inconsistent turns as well as steep hills account for the dangers faced on Arizonian rural roads.
Rural highways such as Road 87 are included in TRIP’s rank, a national research group.
ADOT works diligently on improving the conditions of their rural roads. A major improvement to rural roads has been the engraving of rumple strips. These rumble strips lie on the shoulders of the highway and when a vehicle drifts towards the shoulder, they emit a loud rumbling noise when the tires and shoulder touch. This technology helps wake drivers who are falling asleep or distracted drivers who drift onto the shoulders.
According to reports from ADOT, its rumbling installation on the roads has helped reduce the number of last year’s fatalities by 20%. Their goal is to reach zero fatalities.
Drivers are encouraged to do their part by remaining alert and driving cautiously.
