Last year, there were more than 18,000 deer accidents reported to Wisconsin authorities.

With that statistic in mind, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation has offered tips to help people avoid collisions with deer. These tips include:

  • Avoid all distractions while driving.
  • If there is a deer in your path, hit the brakes. Do not swerve or expect the animal to move out of the way.
  • If a deer looks like it will run into your path, honk at it to scare it away.

Deer activity will be on the rise during the next two months due to it being their mating season.

Deer are busiest at dusk and dawn, so if you drive during those times, be extra alert. The car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® hope these tips can help people avoid injuries in deer collisions.
