Drivers Asked To Be Alert For Wildlife When Time Changes

DENVER (AP) — Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers are warning motorists to be more careful after the state shifts to Mountain Standard Time on Sunday.

Authorities say November sees more car accidents involving wildlife than any other month.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife District Wildlife Manager Cody Wigner says visibility is poor and many big game animals are more likely to be crossing highways when clocks are moved back one hour during the annual time shift.
