There is no shortage of rural roads to drive on in Texas. They’re some of the most enjoyable places to cruise around and they have some of the best scenery anywhere. You do have to be careful, however. You can be careful and still enjoy the scenery, but awareness of some common hazards will help you to stay safe out there.
Rural roads aren’t always maintained as well as are city roads. When a Dallas car accident occurs, it’s almost never because a huge pothole had developed or because a culvert was sticking above the surface of the road. This is fairly common on rural highways, however. Keep your eyes on the road and don’t drive too fast for the surface. If you’re looking at miles of straightway on a rural road, it doesn’t mean that it’s suitable for high-speed driving. In fact, there may be the types of bumps on the road that will wreck your car, and endanger your life.
