Autumn is the rutting season for many deer species.
Deer usually travel in herds, so if you see one, it's likely there will be more behind.
If you see a deer, be careful not to swerve into oncoming traffic or a ditch. Also be careful not to brake too suddenly in case cars behind you go into the back of your car.
- taking note of deer warning signs
- driving with caution below the speed limit
- using full beams to look for the eyes of deer.
Highest-risk times are from sunset to midnight, and the hours shortly before and after sunrise.
If you do hit a deer, report the collision to the police on 101. They will be able to contact someone to assist with the injured deer.
