Rural Driving

Even though there is less traffic in rural areas those roads remain as dangerous as crowded highways. There are some potential hazards in rural areas that you should be aware of: unmarked field and farm driveways and entrances, livestock crossing areas and farm vehicles, rough road conditions. Also, when you drive on countryside road with the similar landscape for a long period of time, be aware of a condition known as “highway hypnosis" which can results in driving in a dulled, drowsy, trance-like state.
