DRIVE SAFELY: Give Wildlife a “Brake”
Deer and other wildlife are more likely to be crossing the roadways at this time of year. Take a look at a few ways you can prepare yourself!
-Watch for young animals, who know nothing of road dangers and often follow slowly behind Mom
-Keep an eye out for squirrels, chipmunks and other small critters along roadways
-Animals get preoccupied with life’s urgent tasks and may rush across a road without looking
-When driving at night, keep an eye out for opossums and other nocturnal animals who may enter the road
SO WHAT CAN YOU DO?
-Firsly, slow down!
-Follow Speed Limits
-Watch for Wildlife in and near the road at dawn, dusk, and in the first few hours after darkness
-Be especially cautious on two-lane roads bordered by woods or fields
-Scan the Road as you Drive
-Use highbeams whenever possible
HOW TO HELP INJURED ANIMALS…
sometimes, collisions are unavoidable…
-Do not put your own safety at risk
-Call someone with the proper training and equipment
