CDOT reminds drivers about wildlife crossings
The Colorado Department of Transportation wants to remind drivers to beware of wildlife crossing roadways, especially at night. CDOT is asking people to stay alert and follow the roadside reminders to slow down at night in specifically designated “wildlife corridors.”
It’s up to motorists this summer to simply do what the CDOT, the Colorado State Patrol, Colorado Parks and Wildlife and numerous other agencies and wildlife advocates always have recommended.
