Watch for deer and stick to the speed limit on Highway 97: resident

“People speed up faster than 80 kilometres on that stretch by Kozuki Drive and there have been deer killed,” said Pamela Moore.

Last week there were three collisions involving wildlife in other areas of the Cariboo.

Drivers really need to slow down. There’s a sign there warning drivers of deer in the area for the next four kilometres.”
