It's a sad fact, but every day there are deer-vehicle collisions (DVC) on our UK roads. BDS members and branches are active throughout the year campaigning and working to raise awareness and reduce DVCs.
In addition, BDS actively records and shares DVC data with a number of organisations large and small across the UK who are also keen to get a clearer picture of the scale of the issue and where the worst affected areas are. However, we currently only receive a tiny fraction of reports which means the real scale of the problem may well be going under-recorded.
We urge everyone if you are aware of a DVC to please report it to BDS either using our Deer App or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the location and deer species if known.
Please when reporting a DVC please do so safely, our app allows for retrospective reports to be sent to us after a DVC and from a different location.
