One very good reason , it is not a high traffic stretch of road. If there is an accident involving only one car, and if that person is unconscious, he or she may be dead before another vehicle passes by to call for help. I am very familiar with the "loneliest" highway as I have travelled it many times, and prayed if something were to happen that the cell site would be up.
