Watch For Animals On The Road

Thanks to Charles for sending this to me. It's that time of year again where it's dark in the morning when a lot of us are heading to work and getting dark when some of  us are driving home (is that a sign that you're working too much perhaps?). That means you have a better chance of not seeing an animal crossing the road. I've been seeing a ton of roadkill lately, and not just in the outlying areas. I saw a deer crossing the road at 29th and Freya the other day!

So slow down and be observant when watching. A wild animal can put a big dent in your car, let alone kill you or it.
