During fall and winter months, deer, opossums, squirrels and other wildlife are moving around in search of food and a place to hole up during the cold fall and winter months.

That means lots more wild animals are crossing back and forth across the roads in front of you. Watch carefully and if you see wild creatures ahead of you on the side of the road — SLOW DOWN! They may suddenly run in front of you … or even crash into the side of your car.

Be careful out there and BRAKE FOR WILDLIFE! Thanks for caring. /Gary

    A great way to watch our for wildlife on the road is to turn down the dashboard lights inside your car as low as possible, or even off – those lights hit your eyes and prevent you from seeing as well outside the car. More here:
