Deer-Vehicle Accidents More Likely In The Fall

first_imgA deer in the headlights is one hazard of driving through Southeastern Indiana.October and November have historically been the worst months for deer-vehicle collisions and the amount of accidents have been on the rise in recent years.In fact, animal-vehicle collisions have gone up dramatically by almost 69 percent since the 1990’s.The rise in deer-vehicle accidents in the fall can be directly linked to multiple factors including the mating season of deer, farmers in the field and more cars on the road, according to District 9 Conservation Officer Bill Beville.“All of those factors are probably the reason why accidents have risen over recent years,” Officer Beville said.“Annually we do see an increase in car-deer collisions in the fall, mainly because of the harvest and mating season.”Hunting season and improved technology that allows farming operations to continue around the clock are also contributing factors.Deer are most active during dawn and dusk. According to Beville, “Drivers should be especially cautious during the two hours window before and after sunrise and sunset.”It is important to always scan the roadway, use high beams, and if a collision is imminent, stay calm and don’t swerve.“Drivers need to be alert and watch for animals entering the roadway. Just by keeping your eyes up and not being distracted by other things, you can greatly decrease the possibility of a deer-car collision.”last_img read more

Region 3 Chair fumes after Govt land handed to AFC Councillor

first_imgIn what is seen as a “blatant” disrespect to authorities at the local democratic organs, Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara) Chairman has raised concerns over the allocation of Government properties to a private citizen.Regional Chairman Julius Faerber in a letter to Guyana Times on Friday, stated that an Alliance for Change (AFC) Councillor from the regional body was granted a piece of land at Tamarind Pasture, Leonora, on the West Coast of Demerara without permission from the Regional Council or the Stewartville-Cornelia Ida Neighbourhood Democratic Council.Guyana Times understands that the plot of land houses several governmental buildings such as the National Insurance Scheme (NIS), a post office, living quarters for overseas doctors, magistrate’s court, Guyana Police Force’s D Division (West Bank Demerara-East Bank Essequibo) and the Leonora Diagnostic Centre among others.Region Three Chairman Julius FaerberThe distribution of the parcel of land to the said Councillor was reportedly granted by the Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission (GLSC) in January of this year. Faerber condemned this action, stating that it threatens the security of these buildings when private persons are given permission to access these properties.“As a private citizen, he should not be given permission to occupy a parcel of land within the confines of a Government compound since it can pose as a threat to security of this compound,” he said in the letter.The Stewartville-Cornelia Ida NDC and the regional body have both objected to the allocation. Further, the Chairman alleged that the matter was brought to the attention of the GLSC and President David Granger.“Objection was made by the mentioned Neighbourhood Democratic Council and the Regional Democratic Council of Region Three to the Manager and Chief Executive Officer of the Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission and His Excellency, Brigadier David Granger,” Faerber said in his letter. Calls to GLSC for a comment on the matter went unanswered.last_img read more
