Late afternoon and evening continue to be dangerous times for both drivers and deer. There were eight collisions between them, mostly on Montauk Highway, last week.

Town police reported two accidents at 5 p.m., one in Wainscott, at the Wainscott Stone Road intersection with Montauk Highway on Nov. 2, and the other on Saturday in Amagansett, on Bluff Road near the highway. Two others occurred around 11 p.m., one on Sagg Road near Merchants Path in Sagaponack on Nov. 2 and the other in Montauk at the intersection of East Flamingo Avenue and Kirk Avenue on Sunday.
