Be more aware of deer in Oak Bay

If Oak Bay kills 25 or even 50 deer, there will always be vehicle/deer incidents. It’s up to drivers to be aware. Give your full attention to the road and surrounding areas.

Knock 10 km/hr off your speed going along Cadboro Bay or Cedar Hill X roads. Forget the phone, even the hands-free, never mind the GPS or fiddling with the stereo while you are in that area – an area with the highest deer/vehicle collisions in Oak Bay. Keep alert and drive with your lights on.

You may save a deer’s life and your own.
