It's either the deer or the crazy unaware drivers out there! Ride safe!

it might be interesting to tally up the number of accidents in Southold due to deer strikes and the number of collisions due to drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol compare these numbers and then compare the urgency with which the Town is dealing with them...certainly duis are a major ,major problem but should the threat posed by too many deer be dealt with so llightly?
