Accidents involving deer
If you live in the Warwickshire countryside, you will probably see a lot of wild deer. The peak season for road accidents involving deer is the autumn, because it is the mating season and rutting time. Part of the reason also is that there is more traffic on the roads at dawn and dusk, because of the shorter days, and it is at these times that deer are active. According to the Deer Initiative the deer population could be around 2 million, a number not seen since the Norman Conquest.
