Woman Says Warning Signs Encourage Deer to Cross, Get Hit
A Fargo, N.D., woman says “deer crossing” traffic signs are to blame for her many accidents with the bucks and does.
Identifying herself only as Donna, she called in to a radio station, Y94 Playhouse, and informed the hosts that she had been in three car accidents involving deer — all of them taking place shortly after she saw a deer crossing sign.
“I’ve even seen them on the interstate,” she said. “Why are we encouraging deer to cross at the interstate?”
Under the impression “deer crossing” signs are much like crosswalk signs in school zones, she blames the government.
“It seems to me that it’s so irresponsible of us to allow these deer crossings to be in an area where these deer are so likely to be struck by oncoming traffic,” she said. “Wouldn’t you agree?”
