Everlasting daylight saving time may stop deer-vehicle collisions, scientists say



The autumnal change from daylight saving time (DST) to plain time comes with a surge of deer-vehicle collisions within the U.S., a brand new research suggests. The researchers argue that sticking with DST, completely, may cut back the variety of accidents, sparing the lives of dozens of individuals and tens of 1000’s of deer yearly.

Information from 23 states urged that greater than 90% of those crashes contain deer, mostly both white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) or mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus), in keeping with a assertion (opens in new tab).
