Ugh. I was driving home late last night and all the sudden I'm driving down a empty section of 4-lane road with a grassy median and at the last minute this thing which looked like a fox or a coyote walks right in front of my car.
I'm pretty sure I ran over the poor thing, as I was going 60 and had no time to stop and then felt a big thud. I went on, and said a prayer, and that's about it.
Granted, this was in the exurbs, right on the fringes of the western extent of Chicagoland. And I kept seeing more and more coyotes and foxes walking along the road after the incident.
So, what have you? Ever hit a deer? A dog? A fox? A bear? A human? Any close calls? Share your stories here.
Also, what's the solution? Open the area to hunters? More guardrails? Or is there none and it's just a part of driving in the country?
