MSHP Advises Drivers to be on the Lookout for Deer Near Roadways

The Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Department of Public Safety remind drivers that deer are more likely to be moving along roads and highways this time of year. One deer strike occurred every 2.4 hours last year in the state. Drivers are reminded to pay attention and to always wear seatbelts. If a deer is struck, move the vehicle to a safe location and dial 9-1-1.
