A common place for accidents to occur on rural roads is where a paved road suddenly changes to gravel. The main reason is that drivers do not reduce speed before the changeover to gravel, and consequently lose control. Loose gravel on road shoulders has also caused a great number of accidents.
When driving on gravel roads—which are often quite narrow––it is important to show caution when approaching another car coming from the opposite direction by moving as far to the right

Blind hills––where lanes are not separate––can be very dangerous, and should be approached with caution. There are also many blind curves
in Iceland that test a driver’s skill.
