Apparently, this is the time of year when most deer/car collisions happen. And those deer rarely go under the tires, they go into the windshield. Somethimes through the windshield. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates 200 people die annually in deer/vehicle crashes.
So, according to the Humane Society, here is what you can do to not kill Bambi or his mom.
1. Slow down: it gives you and the deer more time to react. The magic number seems to be 45 mph or below.
2. Pay attention: deer cross the road in pretty much the same place every day. You saw them there yesterday, you'll see them there again tomorrow. Be ready.
