Deer Most Likely to be Hit on U.S. 89 in Utah

Friday, Nov. 10, 2006

Two stretches of U.S. 89 in the Top of Utah rank as the state’s most dangerous for deer. And more deer are hit this month than any other, as they migrate lower to search for winter food. … Noticeable signs top the list of short-term fixes to dangerous junctions of wildlife and human traffic, said Patricia Cramer, a Utah State University researcher. “That’s one thing we can do tomorrow, is get the word out to people — 45 mph is key. If you can get people to slow down, that’s a big help,” Cramer told an audience at USU last week. “Most accidents would be prevented if people just slowed down.”
