  • No, leave the signs where they are. The deer can just take their chances.

    3 42.86%

    Move the deer crossing signs. . . poll.

    I guess the objective is to diminish the deer / vehicle collisions. Good idea or not? Please think before you vote. This could save thousands of deer lives. The deer are depending on you, vote wisely.

    I think we should get rid of the deer crossing signs and replace them with "Car Crossing" signs for the deer. Let's face it, their chances of surviving are nearly 0, it's in their own best interest to avoid cars. Cars on the other hand, but the time their drivers see a deer it's usually lights out (on which ever side the deer hits.)

    You make a solid point. I've actually been hit by a deer, ran into the side of the car taking out every panel on the passenger side of my moms station wagon. And since I know your going to ask, No, this didn't happen last week.

    I say we teach deer to drive. Problem solved. We'll all be going the same way(s).
    Same chances.
    Although they do have some big ass eyes that are mostly peripheral. Probably bad drivers. Is that racist?

    Oh that's all I need when I'm road biking, some dumb buck trying to text while he's driving running me off the road.

    Not racists but perhaps "Specist." Specist - showing or feeling discrimination or prejudice against animals of other species, or believing that a particular species is superior to another. (From the "Bull$#it I made up" dictionary of contrived words {English Language Edition})

    The government can supply them with self driving cars, then they can text, surf Facebook, and play candy crush all they want.

    We need more car vs deer collisions. We all carry a roll of butcher paper and several sharp knives for a reason. How else do you keep your freezer full?
