Rural roads more dangerous?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-59477788

The report just gives statistics, it doesn't give any explanation as far as I can tell.  As someone that chooses rural roads wherever possible, I'm a bit baffled by this.

Do drivers take more risks because they are "out of the way" or there are less witnesses?  Why would quieter roads cause more accidents?
