The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) estimated, based on a sample of state crash data, that between 40% and 60% of all deaths occurr on locally owned roadways. Furthermore, the fatality rate on local roads is nearly three times higher than the interstate system.
Counties own and operate about 46% of roadway miles in the U.S. Given these facts and goals to reduce fatalities, there needs to be a better understanding about the safety challenges on local roads at the national level.
