I think that this area of the thruway has turned into Western NY's Bermuda Triangle.

It does seem like any time there is an accident on the Genesee County section of Thruway, it is somewhere between mile marker 401 and 390, the Pembroke/East Pembroke section. Seems odd ...

I'd like to know how many of those accidents are caused by trying to avoid a deer? That section is notorious for deer defying death by running across the lanes. When I worked in Buffalo, I used to watch the deer herd up in that area and then note the number of road kill every day.

That's in the area where Mrs. Stratton struck a deer before her car was hit by a truck.

They put some type of reflective markers on Thruway that's supposed to discourage deer near the Clarence service area-I wonder if they can do that to this section of highway.
