Deer collisions keep South Bruce OPP busy

The South Bruce OPP is reminding motorists to be on the lookout for deer.

Between March 21 and April 3, there were at least 10 collisions involving deer in southern Bruce County.

Officials responded to the incident and said no one was injured. But the South Bruce OPP is asking motorists to take precautions to reduce the chance of hitting a deer.

Drivers should keep an eye out for deer during the highest-risk times of the day, from sunset to midnight and around sunrise.

If you see a deer, there may be more, so blow your horn to try to scare the animals away.

If possible, use high beams to illuminate the eyes of deer on or near the road.

When you spot a deer on or near the road but stays in your lane, brake hard.
