The Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation has teamed up with SGI for the tenth year of the "Slow Down and Save a Buck" Campaign.

The program reminds motorists to stay alert and even slow down a little if necessary, in order to prevent vehicular collisions with wildlife.

The Campaign just launched and will include highway billboards, radio and television public service announcements and informational placemats found at selected restaurants around Saskatchewan.

In 2005, three people died in collisions with deer and another 205 were injured in the province.

Over 11,000 collisions with deer were reported to SGI, accounting for over $28 million of vehicle damage claims.
