Watch out for Moose and Other Wildlife!

Moose and deer are most active around dawn and dusk. They also travel at night so be especially alert after sunset because these dark colored animals can be very hard to see until they are right in front of your headlights.

TIP:  Deer eyes reflect light from headlights very well.  But because moose are taller, drivers won’t see their eyes reflected in the headlights.  This makes moose even harder to see in time to avoid a collision.
