Tip of the Week

Advice from AAA Mid-Atlantic: Deer often travel in groups, so if one has just crossed the road, others may be close behind. Use your horn to alert deer instead of flashing headlights; if hitting a deer is unavoidable, slow down and ease off the brakes before impact. Don't try to move an injured deer; call police or animal control.
