While breathtaking in their natural environment, on the roads, these animals can take your breath away, too: Deer like to cross the roads at dusk and in the dark. Turkey are known to wander into roads, too.

That's a danger for motorists who "overreact and cause a secondary accident trying to avoid the animal, and those can be quite dangerous, too," Wolfer said.
