Tips for Avoiding Deer Crashes
The Lansing State Journal reports that there are 1.75 million whitetail deer roaming the state, and experts warn that October through December is the most dangerous time for car-deer collisions. Nearly half of all deer-related crashes occur in this mating and hunting season. Last year, 62,707 motorists were involved in car-deer crashes, resulting in three deaths and 1,647 injuries. Key Fact: motorists should never swerve for a deer because they are more likely to hit a tree or something else.
