DVCsThe Deer Initiative, which the Countryside Alliance is a voluntary supporter of, has released new data on the reported number of Deer Vehicle Collisions (DVCs) in England and Wales, 2008-2013. With between 40,000 and 70,000 incidents a year, DVCs are an increasing problem and awareness needs to be expanded.

This latest piece of work from the Deer Initiative is part of the more recent Deer Aware campaign, which is aimed at reminding drivers that between October and December the number of DVCs are at their highest.

The attached press release names the roads that have had the most reported DVCs, with a map to match, and some top tips to avoid becoming the next statistic.
