Autumn deer

Road safety organisation, GEM Motoring Assist are warning drivers and riders to be extra vigilant of deer at this time of year as they are more active due to the rutting season.

With the Deer Collisions Project estimating that as many as 75,000 deer are killed in vehicle collisions each year, with the damage alone totalling at least £17 million, the autumn breeding season is when you’ll be more likely to come across the animals while on the road.
