No matter where you drive – between rural or suburban streets, or even highways – the risk of striking a deer is very real. It’s also incredibly dangerous. A fully-grown deer can cause extensive damage to your vehicle and injury to your person. Unfortunately, deer collisions are on the rise. The primary reason? Deer are being displaced from their natural habitat by expanding cities, and their own population is growing exponentially. According to the Insurance Information Institute, over 1.6 million deer-vehicle collisions occur every year.
First and foremost, it’s important to educate yourself. Understand the facts regarding deer and other wildlife will help keep you safe on the roads.
When on the road, driving safety is the name of the game. You want always to pay attention to your surroundings, wear your seatbelt, and adhere to all posted signs.
