Motorists Are Urged To Watch Out For Deer On Our Roads
Motorists are being urged to watch out for deer roaming on country roads or near forested areas. This comes as various studies have suggested about 74,000 deer each year are killed on Britain’s roads. This is particularly relevant around this time of year as deer are crossing roads to find new territories.
It has also been estimated that around 400 motorists are injured in deer-related accidents each year. Highway England and the Deer Initiative work together to help protect deer and motorists by advising motorists about deer awareness and road safety. See our infographic below for their useful safety tips to avoid being involved in a deer-related accident.
