Interesting facts about driving in Kentucky:

  1. Eastern Kentucky is home to more than 10,000 wild elk, and elk-related car accidents occur each year. Pay attention to elk-crossing signs in that part of the state and watch your speed, especially around blind curves.

  2. Kentucky's rural roads are some of its most dangerous, sometimes lacking safety features like lighting, left-turn lanes, and wide shoulders. Stay aware while driving those country roads and consider additional coverage to protect yourself in case of an accident.
