Accidental Deer Hunter
Written by Welcome on November 17, 2015
It is that time of year in Minnesota when hunters are out to control the deer population. In the auto body business, that means that the deer are out running across our highways in front of motorists. It is the month of November when we see the most deer and car collisions. It is nearly impossible to avoid many of these collisions. There are some things you can do to reduce the chance of becoming an accidental deer hunter.
- Avoid driving during dusk and dawn. This is the time the deer are most active.
- If you see one there are likely multiple so slow down and be alert.
- Honk your horn. While deer freeze in headlights the sound of a horn could scare them away.
- If you see a deer running across the road stay in your lane and break. The worst thing you could do is swerve to try and avoid it. Most serious accidents occur because the driver looses control and rolls the vehicle or hits another vehicle.
