Deer vs. vehicle collisions peak in the fall

November 3, 2012
By DAVE WERNER , Adirondack Daily Enterprise

Fall is the time of year with the highest risk for a vehicle-deer collision, with November being the riskiest month. The months with the most crash deaths coincide with fall breeding season. Fatal crashes are most likely to occur in rural areas and on roads with speed limits of 55 mph or higher, typical of the roads in Franklin County. The state Department of Transportation and local highway departments place deer warning signs in areas that are prone to deer collisions, but a deer can run into the road any time anywhere.
