Watch out for Deer!

Watch out for Deer!

As the weather changes, deer are moving more, increasing drivers' chances of having a deer-related accident. Deer are more active at dusk and dawn, but motorists are warned that the animals can appear at any time. Please drive with caution.

The most serous crashes occur when motorists swerve to avoid a deer and hit another car. The state police recommend braking firmly, holding on to the wheel and bringing the vehicle to a complete stop. 

Deer are herd animals and typically travel in a single file line. If you see one deer crossing, there's a good chance there is a group of them.
