Albany, N.Y. (AP) - Deer are active this month and the New York State Thruway Authority is reminding drivers to be alert.
Thruway officials say they expect more deer on the highway's shoulders this month and next after a warm winter. They ask that drivers watch for deer, especially when the animals are most active at dawn and dusk.
Drivers should scan shoulders of the road and keep in mind that deer often travel in groups, meaning that if you see one deer there might be more.
