Slow down for deer on local roadways

Drivers in Victoria should slow down, put hazards on when a deer is on the road

I want to spearhead a new convention in the driving community: when a driver encounters deer on or near the roadway, slow down to 30 km/h and put on the hazard lights to warn other drivers of the presence of the animals.

Slowing down would reduce the chances of a collision with an animal and would reduce insurance claims.

Better communication among drivers can’t hurt either.
