Watch for Wildlife
In the past 24 hours, police responded to two collisions involved deer.
Both vehicles sustained damage but luckily, no one was injured in either collision.
The Chatham-Kent Police would like to remind drivers:
– Scan the road ahead from shoulder to shoulder for any movement.
– Use high beams at night, when possible, and watch for the glowing eyes of animals.
– If an animal is crossing the road, stop as safely as possible, in your lane.
– Remember, if one animal crosses the road, others may follow.
– Never swerve suddenly. This may cause you to lose control of your vehicle, resulting in a more serious collision.
