How to Stay Safe on Rural Roads When Driving

How to Stay Safe on Rural Roads When Driving

Our WA road system is vast. It also crosses some of the most remote regions on earth with many of these places being uninhabited. When you’re travelling by car, you’ll likely see a diverse number of farm animals and wildlife as you go on your way.

You need to keep in mind that many of the major rural highways don’t have fences so there are no barriers at all to prevent animals from wandering or running onto the road. The thing with animals is that they tend to feel attracted to roadside drains that collect water, so you’ll likely have a few close encounters with the animal kingdom on a regular basis.

There are a variety of animals that you may come across as you’re driving in WA. These may include: farm animals, kangaroos, oxen, donkeys, rabbits, horses, goats, camels, sheep, cattle, emus and foxes. You also need to bear in mind that birds such as eagles tend to feed on the carcasses of already dead animals on the road. These can be an added hazard to approaching vehicles.
