Glenn Highway Winter Moose Kill Sign Alaska USA

Along the Glenn Highway in Alaska, USA, a sign keeps a tally of the amount of moose which become road kill during the winter and reminds motorists to slow down and be alert.

The highways in Alaska, USA can become treacherous to drive during the winter months and a bright yellow and black sign along the Glenn Highway warns people to be aware of moose. During this particular winter in Alaska, USA, there have been 154 moose which have been killed and the sign keeps a running tally of them.

This is a sad sign to read while driving the Glenn Highway but puts a spot light on the presence of wildlife in the area, especially the moose. Not only will the wildlife along the highway suffer if travelers do not pay attention to this sign, but the lives of people can also be affected as a moose is a large animal to be crashing with.

Moose are unpredictable and if one is spotted along the Glenn Highway in Alaska, or any highway, vehicles should slow down and be prepared to stop. If other vehicles have stopped ahead, be very cautious as a moose may have been seen along the highway.

Speed limits should always be adhered to and alertness is an important factor especially while driving between dusk and dawn as this seems to be when the most amount of road kill are found. During the winter, many moose travel the roads to keep themselves free from the deep snow.
