Is there anybody who doesn’t love Bambi?
On June 3, the Monroe County Herald told of a serious injury accident on Highway 71 near Janus Avenue. The “truck struck adeer and left the road and rolled several times.”
This reminded me of what I told my children when they began to drive. When a deer runs into the road, brake hard, but not so hard as to lock them up, because you lose the ability to steer. Stay in your lane! Do not leave the roadway!
My wife and I have hit three deer and never left our lane. I don’t know if any of our five children (three of whom are “senior citizens”) have hit a deer, but I know for sure that none of them have left the roadway.
If you have to … kill Bambi; it’s self-defense.
