Campaign aims to reduce death rate on rural roads

Rural roads are much more dangerous than motorways according to new government figures.

On average, three people are killed every day driving in the countryside, while a quarter of motorists say they have had a near miss and nearly a third admit to driving too fast.

The findings have prompted a new campaign, urging people to take more care.
