Driving 30 miles an hour on Old Glenham road a deer ran out from behind a passing car and landed on my hood. I had no time for reaction other to slam on the brakes. The deer got up and ran off into the woods. Over 2000 in damage and still to this day I am vigilant but have come close a few more times. We need to curb the population.
If you see a deer by the side of the road or one ran and anotger is behind, then HONK the horn. They hear it and run away.
I hit 3 deer in 4 weeks. I lived on RT 9G enough said
Debby, not all stories need to highlight what is wrong with the world as a whole, sometimes local issues matter too. I live in Northern Dutchess and have hit 2 deer in my life. When you drive on roads that have speed limits of 55 hitting a deer can cause fatalities so don't dismiss it like it's a joke. I was fortunate enough to have only minor damage.
I live in the City of Poughkeepsie. I have lived here for nearly 50 years, the deer population has exploded. I live on a relatively quiet street, and have seen a herd of about 7 deer nearby. Cars zip through the side street by my house, it's just a matter of time before one strikes a deer, and it's my understanding that the highway department won't post a warning sign until that happens.
With all that is going on in the world, this is your lead article? Pitiful!
