Vehicles are driven at higher speeds in smaller cities

Though people living in metro cities complain of traffic jams,one of the main advantages of traffic jams, is that they greatly reduce the possibility of accidents.
In crowded metro cities, the vehicles are being driven at a fairly low speed, so it is easier to avoid accidents
There are fewer traffic signals in smaller cities, and so the drivers, especially younger drivers are driving the vehicle at very high speed.
People also have to walk longer distances to get groceries and other essential items in smaller cities.
