Depending on the geographical location and the climatological situation, the rural areas in developing countries vary from dense jungles to deserts.The traffic situation varies accordingly. This chapter deals with developing countries in arid subtropical regions, where the rural areas are deserts and concentrates primarily on the road safety aspects of the traffic that is characteristic for those desert regions in Middle-Eastern countries where oil is produced. In some cases, the situation in the Sultanate of Oman will be used as an example.
