Speed Limit Enforcement

The leading cause of Key Deer death and injury is motor-vehicle strikes. SOKD collaborated with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office to conduct special speed limit enforcement projects within the Key Deer range. This was accomplished by creating GIS maps of motor vehicle-related deer mortality occurrences (hot spots) and analyzing high-risk time-of-day periods to advise the Sheriff’s Office best locations and time of day for increased enforcement. SOKD is continuing to work toward reducing vehicle deer strikes by involving residents in a “Slow down for Deer” roadside sign campaign and collaborating with the Sheriff’s office on possible permanent speeding mitigation measures in the most needed areas.
