Watch Out for Wildlife While Driving

The state of Minnesota is filled with exciting, interesting wildlife. It’s one of the reasons people move here. However, GoldenbergLaw’s car accident lawyers have also seen the tragedy that can result when wildlife and motor vehicles meet.

It’s important to always keep your eyes on the road when driving on Minnesota’s highways, especially in rural, wooded areas and especially as we enter the fall and winter. Preventing a collision with a large animal requires impressive reflexes and your full attention.

While the Minnesota moose population has been mysteriously declining, there are still some 4,000 estimated moose in the state. A collision with a large Minnesota moose will not only devastate your car, it can even prove fatal.

According to the state of Minnesota, the whitetail deer population in the state can peak at nearly one million every year. When these deer lope across major roadways, they pose a significant danger to unwary motorists.

Aside from always giving the road your full attention, the best way to protect yourself and your car from animal collisions is to ensure that your vehicle is in excellent condition. Keep the tires fresh, the brakes sound, the fluid levels high and the windshield wipers effective.
