WATCH FOR DEER ON THE ROADWAYS

 

At this time of the year, deer are moving.  According to information from the Illinois State Police in District 18, there have been sixteen car/deer crashes in the past five days.  Thankfully no one was injured in those crashes.  If you see deer, start slowing down.  Slowing down increases your reaction time and your ability to control your vehicle.  Your best response to an animal in the road is to brake and steer to avoid the animal, while staying in your lane.  Swerving can result in a head-on crash, crashing into a fixed object, or a rollover.  Remember, deer often travel in herds so if you see one deer, look for others and slow down in the early morning and evening hours when deer are most active.
