Spring has sprung and wildlife is active on local roadways!Monday, May 26, 2014 by: Kate Adams
The Almaguin Highlands OPP would like to remind motorists to use caution when driving as spring has sprung and wildlife is active on local roadways.
OPP have investigated several car/deer collisions on area highways recently so they remind motorists to drive with caution and follow these safety tips:
- Use caution if driving at dawn and dusk, when deer are most active and visibility is poor
- The risk of deer/vehicle collisions is greatest during spring, autumn and early winter
- Slow down when approaching deer standing on the side of the road. Deer may "bolt" or change direction at the last minute
- Deer often travel in groups, if you see one, expect more
