Avoid Vehicle Collisions with Wildlife this Fall

Here are some tips to reduce the odds of being involved in an animal-related collision this fall.

  • Stay focused while driving. Check your mirrors regularly so you always know what is going on around you.
  • Use your headlights at night. Using your high beam headlights will help illuminate the road at night. Further, animals’ eyes often glow in headlights, making them easier to spot.
  • Watch your speed while driving. Animals are unpredictable and often dart into the road. Reducing your speed helps increase your reaction time.
  • Do not swerve your vehicle. If you see an animal, gradually slow down and stop, if necessary.
