Drivers in Colorado are being urged to be alert to wildlife on the roads this Fall as the season typically sees an increase in wildlife-vehicle collisions.

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is reminding motorists to be aware of migrating wildlife especially from dusk to dawn, when wild animals are more active and more difficult to see.

Drivers involved in a wildlife-vehicle collision should report the incident to the Colorado State Patrol by calling *CSP (star key and 277).

CDOT’s advice to drivers is, should a crash with wildlife occur, slow down and concentrate on retaining control of the vehicle, be aware of your surroundings, especially other vehicles, and move your vehicle to a safe position off the road.
