Spring weather means motorist need to watch for wildlife on roads
The Ministry of Natural Resources is reminding motorist to watch for wildlife while driving at this time of year. Moose, elk and deer are particularly active in the spring, especially at dawn and dusk, as they search for food. Deer rarely travel alone, so when motorists see one there are likely more nearby. Drivers who see these animals along the road should slow down and sound their horns in a series of short bursts. At night, motorists should blink their headlights to warn the animals and give them a chance to move out of the way.
