AAMI’s top tips for keep­ing clear of Skippy:

Isis Town and Country - - News -

If you no­tice road kill, slow down and pay ex­tra at­ten­tion as this is of­ten a sign of wildlife in the area.

If you see an an­i­mal on the road, slow down and brake, but avoid swerv­ing. It is far less dan­ger­ous to keep driv­ing and dam­age your ve­hi­cle than swerve to avoid it and col­lide with an­other ve­hi­cle or tree.

Be ex­tra vig­i­lant when driv­ing at dawn, dusk or night be­cause this is when an­i­mals are most ac­tive.

If you have a crash or near-miss col­li­sion with an an­i­mal, flash your head­lights to warn other driv­ers that there is dan­ger ahead.

Keep your lo­cal wildlife res­cue ser­vice emer­gency num­ber on hand in case an an­i­mal is in­jured.
