Deer Danger Escalates

 

It’s that time of year once again. Chatham-Kent Police are warning drivers to be on the lookout for wildlife.

Officers responded to two separate collisions involving deer within the past 24 hours.

Authorities say that while their vehicles were damaged, the drivers in both cases were unharmed – not so sure about the deer.

Police are reminding motorists that animals tend to be out more often between 6 and 9, both in the morning and evening.

Watch your speed, keep an eye on the shoulders for reflective eyes, and if you do come across an animal on the road, don’t swerve or break suddenly to avoid putting yourself or other drivers on the road in danger.
