This is a serious matter, but when I see a headline on WIFR that says "Fall Means Frisky Deer Can Cause Car Crashes" I can't help but laugh a little.

In all seriousness, we need to be careful when driving in Illinois right now. It's deer mating season, and these randy creatures do not have safety on the top of their mind right now.

 

I am totally guilty of swerving when coming upon live creatures on a roadway. Rabbit, squirrel, deer, it doesn't matter...I will cry hard if I hit and kill it. I guess I just need to get over it and realize that I could do more damage to myself and someone else by swerving instead of just hitting it head on.

Be safe, and stay alert!
