The Wisconsin Department of Transportation says deer are more active in early summer as yearlings start to leave their mothers. Spokesman Dave Pabst says drivers don’t expect the deer to be as active as they are – and that increases the danger of a collision this time of the year. Pabst says those same drivers are more aware and are being extra careful in the fall. He says you should put your phone down and watch both sides of the road, especially at dawn and dusk. And, if you are about to hit a deer – don’t swerve. He says it’s always better to hit the deer than to hit another car or to leave the road and roll over.
