Cops: Watch for wildlife
• The Colorado State Patrol would like to remind drivers to be alert to the possibility of encountering wildlife on the highways.
At dusk and dawn, wildlife encounters are more likely and driving slower is one way to protect yourself when driving in wildlife areas. Pay attention to wildlife signs that are posted in areas that have shown an increased likelihood of wildlife encounters in studies done by the Colorado Department of Transportation and the Colorado Division of Wildlife.
If you do encounter an animal, brake. Don’t swerve to avoid the animal. Hitting the animal may be the best option. Swerving increases the risk of a more serious accident.
