Avoid Vehicle Collisions with Wildlife this Fall

Reduce your odds of being involved in an animal-related collision, by following these tips:
• Stay focused while driving. Check your mirrors regularly so you always know what is going on around you.
• Use your high beams at night to see animals easier. Look for shiny eyes on the roadsides. Animals’ eyes often glow when meeting headlights.
• Watch your speed while driving. Animals are unpredictable and often dart into the road. Lowering your speed will allow you greater reaction time if this happens.
• Do not swerve your vehicle. If you see an animal, slow down and gradually stop, if necessary. Use your hazard lights so other drivers know that you’ve stopped.
