Beware of deer on the roads

November 18, 2008 by · Comments Off on Beware of deer on the roads 

November is the peak month for collisions of vehicles with deer.

The number of people who die as a result of vehicle-animal collisions is increasing nationally, according to data from the federal government.

The number of people who have died in such crashes increased from 101 in 1993 to 150 in 2000, and 223 in 2007.

“The months with the most crash deaths coincide with the fall breeding season,” said Anne McCartt, senior vice president for research for the Highway Loss Data Institute.

“Crashes in which people are killed are most likely to occur in rural areas and on roads with speed limits of 55 or higher,” she said. “They’re also more likely to occur in darkness, at dusk or at dawn.”
