Although motor vehicle-deer collisions can happen year-round, November is the month with the highest risk, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Here are some tips to help avoid collisions with deer:
•See the Signs: deer-crossing signs are posted in high-risk areas. Drive with extreme caution, especially in the posted areas.
•Deer Don’t Roam Alone: deer often run together. If you see one deer near or crossing the road, expect that others will follow.
•Danger from Dusk to Dawn: watch for deer especially at dawn and after sunset. About 20 percent of these crashes occur in early morning, while more than half occur between 5 p.m. and midnight.
•Safety Begins Behind the Wheel: always wear safety belts, avoid distractions and drive at safe, sensible speeds for road conditions.
•If a vehicle strikes a deer, motorists should report the crash by calling the Pickaway County Sheriff’s Office.

Since 1988, Triad has helped law enforcement keep older adults safe in their communities by using older volunteers and others within the private sector who have a vested interest in older adults.
In 1988, representatives from the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), and the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) came together to attempt to define a way to help keep older adults safe from crime. The Triad model emerged from that effort.
Triad is not an acronym; it represents a group of three. Triad’s goal at its inception, as now, is to reduce crime against older adults, and to reduce the fear of crime that older adults often experience. Click Here to Read More
