Highways are among the safest roads we have. Although you can travel at a higher rate of speed than other roads, highways are generally designed with safety in mind. The most vulnerable places on highways are where vehicles enter the roadway. These areas allow cars to merge onto the road to join traffic that is already moving. If you have ever gotten onto a highway during rush hour, you know how difficult it can be to get into traffic that is already moving. Nobody wants to let you in, and you could even get into an accident or a road rage incident.
