Driving and wildlife

Honk your horn and brake safely to a stop if an animal is in your path.

When driving around an animal on or beside the road, go slow and give it lots of room. Driving and wildlife >>


Driving and snowplows

Snowplows are cautious about other vehicles on the road, but they are big and do take up space.

They are working for you. Give them the room they need — don’t follow too closely. Driving and snowplows >>
