Watch Out for Deer
Alan Spector/THP Wednesday October 22, 2014

The Tennessee Highway Patrol urges motorists to exercise caution on the roadways this time of year due to deer-mating and deer-hunting season. Last year, two people were killed in traffic crashes involving deer in Tennessee. In all, there were more than 6,100 deer-related crashes on state roadways in 2013, almost 200 more than the year before. The THP advises drivers to watch out for deer on or around roadways, especially at dawn or after sunset. Motorists are also encouraged to dial *THP (*847) from an available cell phone for assistance in the event of a deer-related crash. The call will be connected to the nearest THP Communications Center and the next available state trooper will be dispatched to the location.
