Deer having sex in the middle of the road is a serious problem in Virginia. It's mating season, and rather than keep their sex romps in the woods, deer are venturing out into roads because they aren't that smart and don't seem to care either. Fairfax County officials have issued a few friendly reminders to help cut down on the number of deer-related traffic accidents:
Slow down. The slower you're driving, the more time you have to avoid the deer if you see it.
Use high beams when there's no oncoming traffic, to widen your area of visibility.
Notice Deer Crossing signs.
If a deer is "frozen in the headlights," flash them, since steady lights can mesmerize deer.
All of these precautions because deer have to share their sexual escapades with the public. Shame on them.
