 Page 8 NEWFOUNDLAKELIFE.COM August 2021 Community Brake for Moose — It Could Save Your Life
Remember to brake for moose when traveling on New Hampshire’s roadways. There were 72 collisions between moose and vehicles in New Hampshire in 2020; in the last five years the state has averaged 96 collisions per year. While moose are active year round, May through October are high- risk months for collisions because moose venture onto roadways to eat the remaining salt residue from winter surface treatments. This summer, however, has seen a marked increase in moose–ve- hicle collisions, especially in
the northern part of the Granite State.
“Moose are an iconic species and a tremendous resource of our state, but it can be dangerous to encounter them on the road,” said New Hamp- shire Fish and Game Moose Project Leader Henry Jones. “By fol- lowing a few simple rules, motorists can
greatly reduce their chance of a moose–vehicle collision or the severity of personal injury if they do hit a moose. With more cars on the roads exploring, especially in the Great North Woods, all motorists must be vigilant when traveling in the region.”
When driving on New Hamp- shire roads, keep these points in mind:
• Moose and vehicle
collisions happen statewide on all types of roads.
• Moose collisions occur most often from May through Oc- tober.
• While collisions can happen at any time of day, they occur most frequently at dusk and at night.
• Moose are dark brown, making them hard to see against pave- ment, especially at night.
• Use high beams whenever possible
• If you see a moose, slow down or stop if necessary, until you have passed it or it has left the road
Make sure your moose encoun- ters are safe for you and the moose: Brake for Moose—It Could Save Your Life! Learn more at https://www.wildlife. brake-for-moose.html.

Don’t depend on “eye shine” (reflected light from headlights) to alert you to a moose’s presence; moose don’t always look at an ap-
proaching vehicle.
