The DI together with Highways England is reminding motorists to be
‘Deer Aware’ as collisions between deer and vehicles increase in England and
Wales at this time of year.
Across the UK it's estimated there could be between 40,000 - 74,000 deer vehicle collisions (DVCs), resulting in several hundred human injuries and several human fatalities each year.
With your help we can highlight the Deer Aware message to road users and encourage reporting of DVCs to build on evidence of where, when and how often they are happening.
