Tips For Fairfax County Drivers During Deer Breeding Season

The deer breeding season of the year is here and there are fair chances of sighting a deer around the roads of D.C. area. Many accidents involving deers happen during this season in Fairfax County. To avoid accidents, here are a few tips that the drivers should keep in mind.

According to, “A majority of accidents occur before sunrise and around dusk when most people are heading to and from work or school. If drivers do encounter a deer grazing or in the roadway, Fairfax County police are advising people to slow down or stop, if possible, but never swerve to avoid hitting a deer. At night, watch for eyes shining along the side of the road, and remember to flash your headlights at any deer in the road since they become mesmerized by steady lights.”
