Man vs. Nature

Car accidents involving deer and elk in Colorado are on the rise.

Between 1993 and 2002, there has been a 224 percent increase of such accidents.

The Colorado Department of Transportation is now installing more than 1400 reflectors along Highway 40 near Craig in Northern Colorado.

On the Western Slope, 2 electronic warning signs will be set between Montrose and Ridgeway to slow down motorists on Highway 550.

Officials will study the project for 3 years to decide whether to expand it to other areas.
