1. Remember that deer are “pack” animals. If you see one, chance are there are others nearby or right behind him.
2 .If you’re traveling between dusk and dawn, you need to be extra alert as this is when they’re on the move. Slow down and pay attention.
3. Don’t swerve. Many accidents with deer result in the driver swerving to avoid the deer and driving into oncoming traffic. Although it goes against your first instinct, slow down as much as you can and hit the deer. It will do less damage and avoid a head-on collision with another car
4. Pay attention to deer crossing signs. These are put in areas known for high deer traffic so being extra alert in these areas is a good idea.
5. Honk your horn. Some experts recommend honking your horn for a prolonged blast will eventually scare the deer off the road. That may or may not be true, but honking your horn can’t hurt.
