Clear of Wildlife
California's roads are full of cars — but often, they’re also
full of wildlife. That’s why an estimated 2 million vehicle-animal
collisions happen each year, according to the U.S. Department of
Fall and winter constitute the most dangerous periods for these
incidents. Visibility is reduced, thanks to the shorter days and
inclement weather, and it’s also migration and mating season for many
animals. But, you can still take steps to decrease the chances you’ll
hit an animal. Here are five things to do:
1.Be particularly alert at dawn and dusk. Visibility is low at these times, and animal
activity is high.
2.Keep an eye out for signs. If you’re in an area where wildlife is common, you
may see posted warnings.
3.Watch your speed.
Avoiding any kind of collision is easier if you’re travelling at an
appropriate rate of speed. And, it’s not just about the speed limit.
In certain conditions, driving under the speed limit is more optimal.
4.See an animal?Look
for more. Missing
one animal doesn’t mean you’re out of the woods, so to speak. There
are probably others around.
If possible, don’t make any wild maneuvers. You could end up hitting
something worse than an animal — like another car — or going
into a ditch or down an embankment. Use your brakes, use your horn,
and use your good judgment.
Sometimes, though, collisions just can’t be
avoided. If you do hit an animal, here’s what to do next:
Call 911 for assistance, especially if there are injuries to you or
touch the animal. They can be dangerous, even when hurt.
the accident scene and the damage to your car.
in touch with your insurance carrier or with us.
Keep in mind that the same attributes that make for safe everyday
driving can also help you avoid animal collisions: Remain alert,
maintain a safe speed for conditions and avoid distractions. Also, be
sure to carry adequate car insurance in case something –
animal-related or otherwise – does happen.
