The problem: Prairie Dogs
Now that winter has passed, we have a new road hazard. Prairie dogs. Each summer, the road becomes littered with wandering prairie dogs. They have absolutely no fear of moving vehicles. They will either run into the path of a vehicle or just stand there and let themselves be flattened without even flinching. If you try and dodge these critters, you could end up in a wreck from trying to swerve. It’s best to just keep moving and try not to think about it.
The solution: WYDOT Prairie Dog Plow
By swapping out the winter snow plow for the summer prairie dog plow, WYDOT hopes to keep the carnage to a minimum. You can help by slowing down. Watch for wildlife. Be safe and be aware. Safe driving to all.
No prairie dogs were harmed in the production of this cartoon.
