Risk for deer-car collisions is high in Wisconsin

Posted under car accident attorneys

Wisconsin drivers need to remain alert when they are on the roadways due to the fact that it is deer mating season. This time of year brings more deer to the roadway, and increases the chances of deer-car collisions.

According to State Farm, 1 in every 79 drivers in Wisconsin will strike a deer with their vehicles this year. This number has increased from the previous year, when the risk of hitting a deer was 1 in 88. Each year in Wisconsin, approximately 18,000 deer-vehicle accidents occur on highways.

In West Virginia, there is a 1 in 40 chance of being involved in one of these accidents. State Farm reveals that deer are out and about the most between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., and they usually travel in herds. If you are driving and happen to see a deer crossing the road, proceed with caution because more than likely there are several other deer that will follow.
