Some City Island drivers say more “deer crossing” signage could help improve safety on the roads.

The city's Department of Transportation began the installation of deer crossings signs on Shore Road and along City Island Road back in 2016 after complaints of accidents involving wildlife.

John Doyle, a board member of City Island Rising, says some roads still need the signage.

He says although the current signs that were installed have in fact helped to improve safety, he believes more deer warning crossings need to be installed especially along Pelham Bay Road.

Doyle says that additional lighting along the roadway as well as speed requirements could also help drivers to avoid hitting a crossing deer or worse.

Board members of City Island Rising are expected to meet with transportation officials to discuss further safety improvement options.
