You might know the road like the back of your hand, but you don’t know when an animal might suddenly appear in front of your car.
Livestock collisions can be fatal for drivers, passengers and animals.Remember to give animals a 'brake':
- Drive during daylight hours where you can
- Drive to the conditions and reduce your speed if you see any animals
- Try to avoid swerving, and be prepared to stop suddenly
- Follow animal warning signs
We continue to work with pastoralists and educate drivers in an effort to get everyone to their destination safely.
