With deer/vehicle crashes typically peaking during the months of October and November, area drivers are being advised to be extra aware on the roads. According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, over 20,000 crashes between deer and motor vehicles resulted in nine fatalities in the state last year. More than half of all reported crashes in Kewaunee County involved deer in 2017. Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski suggests many deer accidents are caused by following other vehicles too closely.
Joski says limiting distractions in the car while driving can also save you some possible damage to your vehicle.
