On the road again -- Frisky deer make for risky driving…

Seen more deer out and about while you’re driving these days? There’s a good reason – we’re reaching the peak of the deer mating season here in Franklin TN, and all of Middle Tennessee. Which reminds us that we need to watch out for these beautiful creatures while driving. Watch out for those deer!

November is traditionally has the highest number of deer-related auto crashes in Williamson and Davidson counties. It’s a year-round issue, really. In fact, last year, Williamson County TN was tied for second of all Tennessee counties for the number of deer-auto crashes. Montgomery County had the highest number. These numbers are holding so far, this year, according to the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security.


Stay safe with these tips:

-- Keep a sharp eye out for deer, especially during their busy mating season --  now.

-- When you see one deer crossing the road, there are likely more to follow soon, so go slow.

-- Dawn and dusk is prime time for deer to appear, coinciding with commuters’ drive times, so be especially aware at these hours.

-- Don’t swerve to avoid a deer; you could make it an even more serious accident.

It’s also a good idea not to stop in the middle of the road to take pictures of deer that you see as you drive, as I recently came upon someone doing exactly that, after I had come around a curve!
