Watch for large animals on the road. Drive slowly at night. The speed limit on US Highway 26/89/191 is 45 mph from 30 minutes after sunset to 30 minutes before sunrise. Elk, bison, mule deer, and pronghorn frequently migrate at night and may be difficult to see. Moose use roads as travel corridors. Hitting a large animal at highway speeds has resulted in fatal accidents. Always wear your seatbelt when driving in the park. Careful driving protects you and the wildlife.
