Arizona has one of the worst rates of traffic deaths on rural roads in the country — that’s according to a new report from the nonprofit transportation research organization TRIP.

Its rural roads report finds 2.7 deaths per hundred million miles driven on rural roads.

That’s seventh-highest in the country, and more than twice the state’s rate of fatalities on all other roads.

Rocky Moretti joins me to talk about the report. He’s director of Policy and Research at TRIP.
