Beware of Deer Crossing

The combination of a growing deer population and increased urban sprawl has resulted in an increase in the number of collisions between cars and deer. According to the National Institute for Highway Safety, there are 1.5 million such collisions each year, killing some 150 people and costing millions of dollars in property damage.

Know where the deer are in your area. If possible, avoid these areas at dusk and at dawn, when deer are most active. Deer travel in groups, so if you see one, look for others nearby. When driving in areas frequented by deer, keep your speed down so that you can see and react to them much better. When you can, use your high beams to illuminate the road and the shoulder. Finally, if hitting a deer is unavoidable, do not swerve. Swerving can result in your car’s going into another lane of traffic or off the road entirely.

Actual resolution of legal issues depends upon many factors, including variations of facts and state laws.
