Moose Access Gates Being Left Open Put New Brunswickers at Risk
This is the time of year when moose are on the move and moose/vehicle collisions are on the rise.
The New Brunswick Department of Transportation and Infrastructure continues to receive reports of access gates in wildlife fencing being left open.
Leaving these gates open puts the traveling public at higher risk of being involved in a moose collision. The integrity of wildlife fencing is critical to highway safety.
The Department wishes to remind anyone using the gates to enter or leave a wooded or remote area to close them after their done with them.
There are about 300 motor vehicles/moose collisions per year in New Brunswick with most occurring between dusk and dawn.
