Oh deer, drive with caution.



Every October and November, Troopers handle an increased number of vehicles collisions striking deer in Troop A- Western New York. Operators should use cation around dusk and dawn. If you are operating a vehicle and a deer enters the roadway do NOT attempt to swerve. When an operator swerves to avoid a deer, the vehicle is more likely to strike another vehicle or exit the roadway striking trees or utility poles. If you strike a deer, remain at the scene and call 911. An accident report can be completed by Troopers if your vehicle has over $1,000 in damage or if an involved person has been injured.
