Driving Safety Tips
Divers should be on the lookout of moose and other wildlife near roadways any time of the year. Be alert and continuously scan both sides of the road and along road corridors and medians. Slow down and reduce your driving speed, especially when visibility is restricted by terrain, weather or headlights of on-coming traffic. Use extra caution near posted moose crossings.
The road is a dangerous place. If you or a loved one has been involved in a car crash, seek legal counsel. Call the personal injury attorneys at Ringstad Law Office, P.C. today to see how we can help you
