    It seems to me that d is the best answer. E is a good answer if the road is has blind curves, as my rural road here in Texas does...most of our collisions on it are cars too fast, and can't see around the bend what is coming.

    Thanks, by the way why is d a better answer ?

    If you cant see the road ahead, you cant see dark objects (parked cars, people), and you can't see if a car is coming, which side of the road it is on (drunks drive on wrong side often).
