DEFENSIVE DRIVING HELPS AVOID CAR/DEER COLLISIONS
Car/deer collisions occur throughout the year, but fall is the time when deer are most likely to be moving and might be on the roadways. Seeing deer is the first step in avoiding them so eliminate distractions and concentrate on your driving. If you do see a deer, look for others. Prepare to take evasive action by braking normally and steering around the deer while staying in your own lane. Slamming on your brakes and swerving will cause you to lose control of your vehicle. Remember, it is less dangerous to hit a deer than chance hitting another vehicle, tree, or other fixed object. If you do hit a deer, stop in a safe place, make sure no one is injured, and contact the nearest law enforcement agency.
