Today's Top Five List


Introduction: Estimates of the number of deer and car accidents total somewhere between 40,000 and 120,00 auto wrecks each year, just in New York State alone. The peak season for accidents begins each November and continues throughout the spring months in many rural areas.

  • 01

    Slow Down

    Slowing your speed is the easiest and surest way to avoid hitting deer on the highway. It's easier to stop a car traveling at 50 miles per hour than a vehicle traveling 60.

  • 02

    Use Your Brights at Night

    When traveling in areas without oncoming traffic, use your brights. The deer aren't concerned with lights or even auto horns, but you'll be able to spot deer entering the highway at night if you use your bright lights.

  • 03

    Expect More, If You See One

    Deer travel in small groups. If you only see one, there are others lurking nearby and expect more to enter the roadway. Look carefully for deer where wooded areas are located on both sides of the roadway.

  • 04

    Keep Alert For Signs

    Notorious deer crossings are marked with signs. Many times these also list the number of miles included in the warning. Pay attention to the signs and expect deer in these sections.

  • 05

    Look For Carnage

    Dead deer in the roadway are signs that you're traveling through deer crossing areas. Expect more deer during daylight and nighttime hours in these areas.
