      Watch out for deer in November

      if you see a deer in front of you hit your brakes firmly and don't swerve or change lanes

      More deer crashes happen in November than in any other month.The combination of the hunting season and the mating season leads to November having the most deer and car crashes. "We will have a deer-vehicle collision about once every two weeks and sometimes we will have two in one day," said Oregon Police Chief Mike Navarre.Motorists should reduce their speed when driving through a deer crossing zone, and if you see a deer in front of you hit your brakes firmly and don't swerve or change lanes. "Your ability to take evasive action is enhanced if you are driving at slower speeds," Chief Navarre said.

      The hours between sunset and midnight and just before and after sunrise are the peak times for deer and vehicle crashes.
