Non Interstate Fatalities
Friday May 22, 2015

A report from the nonprofit transportation research group TRIP shows Tennessee is among the 20 worst states when it comes to rural non-interstate traffic deaths.
Citing U.S. Census Bureau and Federal Highway Administration data, Tennessee reported 459 non-interstate traffic deaths in 2013, twelfth most in the nation.
The report cites a growing population which has led to more drivers on rural roads that lack desirable safety features and can lead to longer emergency response times because of their rural locations.
The report blames a higher tendency for drivers to travel at higher speeds, narrow lanes, sharp curves, inconsistent design, limited shoulders and limited visibility.
