Why do we put Deer Crossings right on the Highway?

The (viral) deer crossing lady may be seriously confused or may be pranking, but either way her complaint is very funny.

She says she has had three car accidents on the highway involving deer, and in each case the accident occurred shortly after passing a deer crossing sign.

Why does the government put the deer crossing signs on busy highways? That encourages the deer to cross at the worst possible place! The signs should be moved to less traveled roads where the deer can cross safely.

1. Highways tend to be very long

 

It's pretty hard to go around one.

8. The only sure way to make them stop...

...is to catch them in your headlights.

3. I think the deer choose their own crossing points.

We run roads right through their habitats.

Thankfully they do not resort to semi-automatic weapons and explosives to counter the invasion into their habitat.

5. If pranking, she does a good job

of sounding serious the whole way through. Maybe a budding comedian.

6. She sounds so smart and composed that

I came away wondering whether she was really that dumb, and she doesn't rise to the DJ's bait.

But either way, it should be taught to school kids as a lesson about cause and effect.

19. She sounds like she's about to crack up at 1:20.

I think this is a prank.





I hope this is a prank.

7. Because we build highways where the deer already roam.

One hopes the deer crossing lady is being tongue-in-cheek, but never underestimate the stupidity of anyone.
