Sussex drivers shared tips on avoiding deer in the fall

DRIVERS get advice to avoid hitting deer on the roads.

As daylight fades in autumn, motorists are being urged to take extra precautions to avoid hitting the animals crossing country roads.

The advice, sponsored by East Sussex County Council, comes as the deer mating season occurs in October and November. The danger of encountering the animals is greatest at dawn and dusk.

Councilor Claire Dowling, Senior Member for Transport and Environment, said: “We are fortunate to live in East Sussex, in a largely rural county that provides ideal habitat for deer.

“By following a few simple tips, riders can protect themselves and ensure these magnificent creatures continue to roam freely and thrive in our beautiful landscape.”

Drivers are advised to slow down near warning signs and use high beams when there are no other cars nearby.

Advice from The Deer Initiative also tells motorists that deer are creatures of habit.

Anyone who hits a deer should remain calm, park in a safe area with hazard lights on, and call the police on 101 or 999 if anyone is injured or the deer is on the road. Sussex drivers shared tips on avoiding deer in the fall
