Watch For Wildlife; Call For Assistance

The Garrett County Traffic and Transportation Advisory Committee reminds motorists that wildlife, especially deer, are on the move right now. Be extra cautious, especially at dawn and dusk, when light levels decrease visibility. Drivers who scan the area ahead, maintaining good situational awareness, may prevent significant property damage and personal injuries. Removal of deer killed on the travel portion of the road is important for the safety of all motorists. To report roadkill in Garrett County for removal assistance, call 301-334-1911. Give the dispatchers as much information as you can, such as address (if it’s near a house), mile markers (on I68), distance and direction from road intersections, etc. The dispatcher will call the appropriate agency to safely remove the animal and improve road safety for other motorists.
