Drivers in the east and southeast are urged to exercise caution as there have been a considerable number of reindeer sighted on the roads, according to a notification from the Road Administration.

Drivers and passengers are asked to take special care after dark, when it is much more difficult to see the animals.

Winter travel conditions are in effect for many parts of the country. Weather reports indicate snow and low visibility. In fact, yellow and orange warnings have been issued for the whole country for the weekend.

Add wandering reindeer into the mix, and it becomes a dangerous situation. Maybe this weekend, stay home and catch up on those shows you just started bingeing.
