Twin Tiers (WENY) - You know when you see those signs on the highway reminding you to watch out for deer? Well, deer are more active in May and June and state police are asking drivers to stay on “antler alert”. Police say most deer crashes happen during the next two months, May and June. The Thruway Authority also says deer are more active during evening, dusk and dawn. More than 2,000 accidents involving cars and deer were reported along the state thruway last year.
