Drivers Warned To Be On Lookout For Deer

Wisconsin transportation officials are warning drivers to be on the lookout for deer next month.

The Department of Transportation tells the Associated Press that car-deer crashes typically peak in the fall but June is one of the most dangerous months for drivers. Deer are on the move this time of year as they search for places to give birth and young deer separate from their mothers.

The agency says drivers should be especially vigilant during the early morning and evening hours, when deer are most active. Drivers also should be aware that deer seldom run alone. If they spot a deer along the side of the road they should slow down and honk their horns with one long blast to frighten the animal away.
