Deer-vehicle collision season upon us

Oh, deer. State transportation cabinet officials are warning drivers to be on the lookout for the animals along Kentucky roadways as both the fall mating season and deer-vehicle collision season have officially commenced. Increased field activity by farmers as they harvest crops also puts deer on the move, which could make them more likely to come into the path of passing vehicles. In the Bluegrass State, the odds of a driver being involved in a collision with a deer is about 1 out of 107. However, those numbers double during October, November and December.
