A woman referring to herself only as “Donna” recently called in to the Y94 Playhouse Fargo, N.D. radio station with a serious complaint. Over the past two years, she’s been involved in three separate car accidents involving deer. Remarkably, each accident occurred shortly after she saw a deer-crossing sign on the highway. So what is her suggestion? Move the deer crossing signs, of course.
“My concern is that Minnesota's and North Dakota’s departments of transportation would allow these deer crossings to be in such high-traffic areas,” Donna says. “Why are we encouraging deer to cross the interstate?”
Donna goes on to say it is so irresponsible to allow these deer crossings to be in areas where the deer are likely to be struck by traffic. Truly believing the signs are there to inform deer of where they need to cross the road, she suggests moving the signs to smaller towns or perhaps even school crossings. She claims to have sent several letters to TV stations and the local newspaper, but no one has been willing to take up the cause.
