Last week, a woman called into a radio in Fargo, N.D. to complain and inquire why deer crossing signs are being placed in high-traffic areas. The woman, named Donna, apparently believes the signs are strategically placed to offer a gateway for deer to cross. What Donna doesn't seem to understand is the signs are placed to warn people that deer usually cross in that area.

"Over the past few years, I've been involved in three separate car accidents involving deer," Donna said. "Each of these incidents, they've occurred shortly after I saw a deer crossing sign on the highway. My frustration is that Minnesota and North Dakota department of transportation would allow these deer crossings to be in such high traffic areas. I've even seen them on the interstate.
Why are we encouraging deer to cross on the interstate. I don't' get it. It's such a high traffic area. I mean, I understand they are animals and they need to travel across the street in order to survive and find food, but it seems to be that so irresponsible to allow these deer crossings to be in areas where deer are likely to be struck by oncoming traffic."
The radio host tried to explain to Donna what the signs meant, but she still didn't quite grasp the concept.
"They can direct the deer population anywhere they want to by moving that deer crossing sign," she said. "Why in the world would they place it on the highway or the interstate, you know? I mean, god, there are so many other places I can think of to put the deer crossing signs on busy highways and the interstate."
