All manner of strange things occur in Berkeley, California and two of them (almost) collided recently; a grown man riding a scooter and deer crossing at a designated crosswalk.
Daniel McPartlan’s Sony Action Cam was recording as he approached a crosswalk at Grizzly Peak Rd. in Berkeley. He likes to keep it running in case he’s in an accident and needs to prove who’s at fault.
On this evening, he caught a few deer obeying pedestrian law.
No doubt “Donna the Deer Lady” would be applauding these upstanding venisons, but if you’re a guy on a scooter you’re thanking God the encounter wasn’t any closer.
There’s no word yet if the city of Berkeley will be ticketing deer in the future for jaywalking. My guess is that ordinance will take a few weeks to get through city council.
Until then, keep your head on a swivel Berkeleyans!
