Drive with extra caution...

Since it is baby season, a lot of wildlife mommies are on the move to find a spot to have babies. The majority of them will be crossing roads. Remember to slow down, expecially at night.

No problem Rainbow I have to say, as much as i love baby season, i hate spring. Seeing all of the roadkill If people would only just slow down and have a little respect.

Absolutely, aco22. There are so many animals on the road now. Even though the speed limit is 80, doesn't mean you have to do it in the dark.

Also use your bright lights when you can, it makes a huge difference in seeing the reflection of eyes on the side of the road.
