The change from winter to summer time poses risks for drivers. This increases the risk of accidents involving wildlife, because there is no time change for animals.
With a view to switching from winter to summer time, drivers should consider the increasing risk of accidents involving wildlife. Because of the time change, rush hour traffic coincides with dusk, when deer and wild boar are also on the move, the ADAC is now pointing out. The automobile club therefore advises drivers to be particularly careful when driving.

If an animal suddenly runs into the road, the speed should be reduced, dimmed and honked immediately. If a collision with an animal can no longer be avoided, drivers should apply the brakes and under no circumstances swerve. "The risk of colliding with oncoming traffic or a tree is very high, which could have worse consequences than colliding with game," according to the ADAC. At the same time, it should be noted that deer and wild boars are often in packs.
You should therefore continue to be careful if an animal has already crossed the road. If an accident has occurred, it is imperative that the scene of the accident be secured and the police notified. Under no circumstances should an injured animal be touched as it could bite or be infected with an illness. (AG)
