STEER CLEAR OF DEER, WITHOUT STEERING OFF THE ROAD

 

This is the time of year when car/deer accidents are most likely to occur.  District 11 Commander Jerry Culp warns you to be on the lookout for deer while driving in likely locations where deer may emerge suddenly onto the road.  Captain Culp says, "Don't swerve."  Most serious crashes involving deer are the result of evasive maneuvering by drivers, often striking another vehicle or fixed object along the road.  Striking the deer can cause extensive damage to the vehicle, but occupants routinely remain uninjured. 

 

The best response is to avoid the animal by steering or braking while remaining within your traffic lane.  If you see deer close to the road, slow down and be prepared to take evasive action.  Be especially alert for deer in low-lying and wooded areas.
