Deer are on the move, and their movements are unpredictable. When they cross the road, they go for it – and they are crossing a lot during October and November. Most collisions with deer happen at this time of year. Please drive with heightened awareness, especially at dawn and dusk when a majority of collisions happen. Hitting a deer can run thousands of dollars in repairs, can result in varying degrees of injury, can be emotionally difficult, and often results in an injured or dead animal. Please keep an eye out for wildlife on the road. They are out and about, and it makes for a better day to drive on knowing that you missed hitting or killing an animal and/or injuring yourself or others because you were paying attention, than otherwise. You can't prevent every collision with wildlife, but if you drive with attention and a controlled speed, you can prevent most.
