Temperature Drops Mean Deer Road Crossings Go Up

This is mating season for deer and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources is urging drivers to be extra cautious on the roads.

Motorists should be vigilant for deer darting into the road, especially in rural areas says i-d-n-r spokesperson Ed Cross.

Cross also says deer often stop in the middle of the road or double back. Last year in Illinois…41 percent of deer-vehicles crashes occurred in October.
