Drivers warned about higher deer activity

 

With deer/vehicle crashes typically peaking during the months of October and November, you are being advised to be extra aware on the roads when you are behind the wheel.  According to the Department of Transportation, over 16,000 crashes between deer and motor vehicles occurred in the state last year.  Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski says many deer accidents are caused by following other vehicles too closely. 

 

 

Deer activity usually spikes during the hours around dawn and dusk.   The leading cause of accidents, injuries, and deaths from deer-related accidents is when vehicles try swerving to avoid hitting a deer.  The safer recommended option is for you to slow down as much as possible and let your vehicle hit the deer, rather than swerving and possibly moving into oncoming traffic or hit other objects that can cause a rollover.
