Traffic circles can help to reduce serious injuries

When people drive on rural roads in Kentucky, serious car accidents are always a possibility. Many rural intersections are governed only by stop signs, despite the fact that cars on those roads can travel up to a speed limit of 55 mph. While there may be a relatively small amount of traffic on these roads, the risk of a severe accident can be significant. High-speed crashes in rural areas can lead to serious injuries and even fatalities.

A tired truck driver is a threat to your safety
