Driver wants deer crossing signs moved to areas with less traffic
wordpress ^ | October 16, 2012 | Dan from Squirrel Hill

“I wanted to voice my opinion on something that’s been bothering me for a really long time. I tried writing the newspaper and contacting TV stations but nobody seems to want to stick with this so I’m calling you guys. Over the past few years I’ve been involved in three separate car accidents involving deer. Each of these incidents occurred shortly after I saw a deer crossing sign on the highway.”

“My frustration is that Minnesota and North Dakota departments of transportation would allow these deer crossings to be in such high traffic areas. I’ve even seen them on the interstate. Why are we encouraging deer to cross at the interstate, such a high traffic area?”

“I understand that deer are animals and they need to travel across the streets occasionally to survive and of course to find food, but It’s so irresponsible of us to allow these deer crossings to be in areas where deer are likely to be struck by oncoming traffic. You’d think they would put deer crossings in smaller towns – maybe at a school crossing would be a safer place for them to cross.”

“They can direct the deer population anywhere they want to by moving that deer crossing sign. Why in the world would they place it on the highway or the interstate? There are so many other places I can think of than putting deer crossing signs on busy highways or interstates. The deer crossing sign is there to allow the deer to know that that’s where they need to cross. Don’t put deer crossing signs on the interstate or freeways. Put them in lower traffic areas where it’s a lot slower – small towns – I think school crossings is a good idea.”

In Texas, those signs would have to be bilingual because some deer can only read Spanish.

I’ll bet the writer will be voting for Obama. Thanks for the chuckle this gray morning.

Near Wilmington, OH there’s a “Deer Crossing” sign about a quarter-mile down the road from a John Deere dealer.

Remember that every time you hear the politicians and the MSM moan about more $$$$$$ for "the nation's crumbling infrastructure." A lot of that money goes to put up signs every couple of feet on roads. In my area, there is a sign to make a left turn if you want to get to Route 63 and its on the exit ramp of Route 63. We have electronic billboards that cost a fortune that, for the most part, flash "Don't Drink and Drive."

same here in my town of St Augustine, tons of signs have popped up.

There are a couple which directs and lets tourists know where a certain place is and of which no one ever goes to and is a complete waste of tax money.

Its a site which had the first 100 slaves live freely for just 12 years, problem is no one ever goes to it. Two park rangers work there which do nothing and millions have been invested into a new building which is crap, small and has nothing in much.

But hey lets waste millions of tax money on a peice of ground where just over a 100 freed slaves once lived for 12 years.

We have signs about saying don;t drink and drive etc too.

Well the crops are, ummm, growing very well and they’re organic and some of them have pesticides and I think that we should make a perfect pesticide for the crops that, umm, is good for people and healthy and keeps the crops preserve too because we need the food because it’s food and stuff, and organic food is good, also...

oh and ummm the businesses in downtown, umm, really need to lower their rent because if the rent was lowered those people would really have their own businesses they have enough stuff, they’re very good at making things they’re like experts they’re really good...

and it can really be a community and, umm, make the things and, umm, sell them in our stores and I really belive that it can be a California thing it can really work out because we can be rich in cotton and mining minerals and silk worms (??) and making things,... cars and the machines to make it work and we can have the community and city San Fransisco and we can make things and put them in the stores on the east coast they have slaves and slavery and made in china but on the west coast the new west coast we don’t believe in union... and that’s what we are , and the Bush administration which is really good , um , he has funding for small business owners, the you can grow every kind of fruit and vegetable that you want that’s how they do it they have fruit trees and vegetable trees, that’s where fruit and vegetable comes from, you freeze the fruit and vegetables it will last forever you can put like broccoli or strawberries in the freezer it will last forever if you don’t, um, it might go bad in a while....

People, we live in California this is our home , this is where we live, growing food is so good, umm... for the people because its free, alls you have to do is pay the farmers and pay for the land but why do we have to pay for the land? the land is free its new land you know, I mean do you have to pay for the land? do you have to pay rent do you have to pay um... the foods FREE so we should just..... sell it at the farmers market

Folks ? this is a case study to once and for all prove that Liberalism is in fact a mental disorder.

I know a family member who voted for Obama and after these 4 years still defends Obama.
Heard him saying that the Republicans are making a big stink over Benghazigate and how they want to score political points over Benghazigate... and this person said that he has misgivings with both of them, Obama and Romney.
This person said in the last year " I think I am becoming more of a Republican " ....
I told this person that no one died in Watergate.... and this person now is going to spend the rest of the day using their brain power to figure out somehow how Watergate was worse and was justified that Nixon resigned.
I am sorry, but, some people, morons should not be allowed to vote.

DEER CROSSING 4a.m. to 8 a.m. and 5 p.m to 9 p.m.

That should help Donna to know when to approach those signs.

Yeah, I know, and this person says that he's becoming more of a Republican in the last year is all BS.
He says that, but, just today defends Obama on Benghazigate.
I have a feeling this person will vote for Obama again, via in secret and not as blatant as they were in 2008.
I do not believe him saying that he's becoming more of a Republican just to shut me up.... he's always known to be 2 faced.

I think it is time for you to sit his person down, maybe a few others and ask him, what he knows about Benghazi, as your not sure if you understand it yourself. Play dumb and prod him on. Suggested questions:

Where is Benghazi, where there any killed?, was there any security? How many? Who was the Ambassador? So the Embassy was in Benghazi? All because of some video?, just damn.

Get some of your other conservative right thinking sane friends to join in the Q&A.

I know it's mean, boarding on Bullying, but still. lol

If the deer get hit, it’s their own fault. If you look at these signs, they clearly indicate that the deer should be leaping across the road, not casually strolling across in front of traffic.

No, you need more signs. Specifically, a 'No Loitering' sign. Those deer weren't crossing, they were loitering.

This person get's his view point from the MSM's talking points.
He may have to take most of the day trying to figure out with his limited brain power how Watergate is somehow worse than Benghazi even though 4 people died.
This is one of those unredeemable morons.
The same narcissistic personality , proud, arrogant, self important, blames everyone but them, can never do no wrong that Obama personality shows this person also has.... you know, 2 birds of a turd crap together.

"loitering"

Actually deer do loiter. Some years ago while going to work early in the morning, I came across a herd of about twenty deer standing in the middle of the highway staring at the face of hill. Apparently the deer couldn't figure out how to leap over a one hundred foot high rock face. I tried to wend my way carefully through the herd, but one managed to run into my car anyway. At one time I managed to hit or be hit by four deer in the space of five years. That's life when you live in deer country.
