If you live in a city, the largest animal you may encounter on the street is your neighbor’s Labrador retriever. Even that dog could be a problem for drivers if the dog darts into the street in front of your vehicle or if it chases your car.
But any time you drive in a rural or wooded area—even in the suburbs—you may need to worry about wild animals on the road.
DriveitHOME™ is an initiative of the National Safety Council, designed by and for parents of newly licensed teen drivers. DriveitHOME™ offers free resources parents can use to help their teen build experience to become safer drivers.
