Not all may have been in accidents involving deer and other animals but it would be a good preparation in case it happens to you. The month of November is the time ripe for deer sighting along roadways. Only 2% of car-deer collisions led to death but around 84.9% of deer crashes are followed by death of the person.
A few pointers on handling the presence of deer might save your life: (1) At the sight of a deer-crossing signs – drive slowly, use your high beam, and cover the brakes; (2) if an animal has been injured, stay away. It may attack or injure you unintentionally; (3) do not challenge large animals with your presence by approaching them or you will be sorry; and (4) in driving along animal trodden roads, especially at night, reduce your speeds less than 35 to 40 mph, only with an extremely heightened sense of awareness.
There is no need to endanger yourself as risk to your life by car or animal can be easily avoided.
