Car-deer accidents on the decline

According to a new study by Statefarm, car-deer crashes have slightly declined across the country. However, Wisconsin still ranks seventh in the country for car versus deer accidents. Compared to last year, Wisconsin is down by 1% despite a reported 37 car-deer collisions in September.

The Statefarm study shows that Wisconsin drivers have a one in 97 chance of hitting a deer. The Lincoln County Sheriff suggests that the safest option for drivers, as hard as it may be, is to hit the animal rather than swerve out of the way. Trying to evade hitting the deer can result in more serious injuries.

Law enforcement encourages drivers to use their brights at night and to keep an eye on roadside ditches. Statefarm claims that October is the second most dangerous month for car-deer accidents, behind November.
