Officials from State Farm Insurance have used information collected by the Federal Highway Administration in order to calculate the number of deer and car collisions that occur in the state of Michigan. According to data, the most common month for a collision to occur between a deer and a car is November and officials are hoping this report will help remind drivers to pay extra attention to the roadways.
This year, information shows that a Michigan driver has odds of 1 in 72 to strike a deer. This number is compared to last year’s 1 in 83 motorists. Another report was recently released by the Michigan Deer Crash Coalition that showed that deer and car collisions have decreased by four percent in 2011 compared to 2010.
While this may be true, officials added that many collisions involving deers are not reported so the actual numbers may be much higher.
The five counties in the state with the most accidents are Kent, Oakland, Jackson, Calhoun and Montcalm. Nearly 18 percent of all deer-car collisions in the state occur in the month of November.
The month of October has the second highest rate of deer collisions. Officials are reminding drivers that deer usually travel in groups so if you see one, there are usually more following.
Also, deer are most active between the hours of 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. so make sure to use high beam lights to brighten the area. Finally, officials are reminding drivers that deer whistles mounted on vehicles are not 100 percent effective. nike air max 97 nike air max 97 nike air max 97
