Car Crashes

Wisconsin drivers are reminded that June is the one of the worst months for car-deer crashes. The D-N-R says deer activity is on the rise about now, as does look for places to give birth – and younger animals leave their mothers. Authorities say drivers should watch for deer at all times – especially in the early morning and evening hours. Deer are most active as the sun goes up-and-down. And they don’t often run alone – which means that if you see one deer, another is probably close behind. Authorities handled about 17-thousand car-deer crashes in Wisconsin last year. Dane County had the most, with just over 850.
