The departments of Transportation and Works, and Fisheries and Land Resources are warning motorists to slow down watch for moose, especially during the Victoria Day weekend.
Motorists are encouraged to report moose sightings and accidents by calling 1-855-896-6673 (1-895-85-MOOSE).
In 2016, there were 580 moose-vehicle collisions in Newfoundland and Labrador, the departments said.
Most occur between May and October, and though moose are more likely to be seen along highways and roadways at dusk and dawn, collisions often take place during other times of the day, especially at night when moose are hard to spot.
The provincial government and the Save Our People Action Committee (SOPAC) offer these tips to help avoid moose accidents:
Scanning both sides of the highway when you travel.
Paying close attention to warning signs.
Avoiding driving at dusk and dawn when moose are more common alongside highways,
Having passengers also watch for moose.
Not travelling at night when moose are more difficult to see.
