|Topic: When Horses and Other Animals Are Encountered on the Highway|
drive in rural areas, in National Forests and on other National lands,
the road ahead may not always be clear. You will encounter domestic and
wild animals standing on, or crossing the highways. Animals almost
always have the right of way, especially if they are really really big!
Be especially cautious when driving near cattlemen herding their stock on or near the roadway. Drive slowly so you do not spook their horses.
Deer and other fleet-footed large animals are prone to jumping out into the roadway unexpectedly. Watch both sides of the road ahead carefully and you can often spot them before they enter the road.
A good road trip activity for children is to teach them to see how many animals they can spot on or near the road up ahead. If you make a game out of this, you will have more eyes looking forward for danger and will have fun in the process.
