Sergeant Bob’s Safety Tip of the MonthVisit the Senior Safety Tips website
Vehicle / deer collisions, and how to avoid them:
While it can occur year-round, the chances of striking a deer with your vehicle skyrocket November through January. There is no conclusive evidence to suggest that deer whistles work. So what does work?
- Following the posted speed limits, and even adjusting your speed for low light and environmental conditions.
- Good vehicle maintenance; frequent windshield wiper replacement.
- Concentration; deer may appear suddenly and be unavoidable but subtle movements can be detected in the road side shoulder areas.
- Not following too close; you maximize sight lines by backing off.
